LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Lee County law enforcers are making sure that dozens of foster children have gifts to open this Christmas.

For the past ten years, Leesburg Police Chief Charles Moore and his officers have collected toys and money for Lee County's Division of Family and Children Services.

With the help of Lee County Sheriff Reggie Rachals, they unloaded a flatbed full of new bikes and 20 bags full of toys to be distributed to foster kids.

"Receiving toys means a lot to kids, and seeing the smiles on their faces is what it is all about too," said Sheriff Reggie Rachals, Lee County Sheriff's Office.

"It makes us happy knowing that we can give to the kids and give back to the community, it is a real joy knowing that we are helping them out," said Chief Charles Moore, Leesburg Police Dept.

Chief Moore says community involvement has grown over the years.  

They plan to keep the tradition going next year.
