ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A group of Albany men helped feed the hungry this Christmas Eve and gave a family something to smile about.

The Boi's, as they like to be called, fed a handful of people on the Eastside of Albany Monday afternoon.

The group also gave a family of 11 gifts for Christmas. The gifts included toys, baby dolls and even a couple of bikes. 

Representatives from the organization say they want to treat people how they treat each other.

"Our hearts run deep. If one of us don't have it, somebody else has it. That spilled over to what we have going on right now. They don't have and we came together to make sure they get it," said Kemo Jones with The Boi's.

Volunteers say they're very appreciative for those who came out and made it possible for the event to happen.
