ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Thanks to your generous donations, Salvation Army officials tell us they exceeded their Toys for Tots goal this year.

Major Kelly English says 500 families will receive toys this Christmas.

English estimates more than 5,000 toys were donated.

While the toy collection deadline has passed, English says it's never too late to donate to help those in need.

"Don't put it away we can still certainly use it. The whole idea is if we have abundance then we'll give in abundance. So we'll still give it out," said Major Kelly English with the Salvation Army.

If you would still like to donate, you can drop off toys or money at the Salvation Army on 2nd Avenue.
