ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Chehaw is helping underprivileged kids have a special holiday season.

The park is accepting donations for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Drive for the first time in several years.  They're hoping to help families in need as many people continue to struggle to find work.   

"Just because of the economy, many are unemployed and can't do as much as they used to do," said Salinda Owens, Guest Services Supervisor.  "And this is just our way to try to help out more...and get people, give them an experience out here that maybe they wouldn't get to do otherwise."

You'll get a free train ride at Chehaw for every unwrapped toy you donate at the park. You can drop off gifts during the Festival of Lights from December 6th through 19th.
