ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Florida-based charity reaches out to help cheer up sick children in South Georgia.

Christ's Starfish donated a bunch of boxes filled with toys to the pediatric unit at Phoebe Putney Hospital, Thursday afternoon.

The donations ranged from rattles and blankets for babies to video games for older kids.

"We do it because the Lord called us to do it and we're just trying to be obedient to his call. A byproduct of that is helping these kids have a better stay at the hospital and putting a smile on their faces which we do a lot and also help the families going through a very difficult time," said Christ's Starfish founder Carldon Lahey.

Christ's Starfish started in 2007 to comfort children who require extended stays in hospitals.

They currently work with hospitals in Georgia, Florida and Mississippi.
