THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) –A Thomasville car dealership is teaming up with two well-known charities to bring joy to less fortunate children this Christmas.

Flowers Nissan collects donations for Toys for Tots every year.

But they say this year they'll keep accepting new, unwrapped toys all the way up to Christmas Eve.

The toys will go to the Salvation Army's list of emergency families who qualified for Christmas Assistance after the sign-ups in October.

"We've had two pickups already and have a full box now," says David Flowers, the owner of Flowers Nissan. "It was a little slow at the beginning of the month but it seems everyone is doing their Christmas shopping late."

Officials say all the toys will be distributed within Thomas County.

Flowers Nissan expects to end their Toys for Tots campaign with more than 500 toys donated.
