LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Lee County law enforcement made a special Christmas delivery to foster children.     

The Lee County Sheriff's Office, Leesburg Police, and Chamber of Commerce delivered more than 1200 toys to the Lee County Division of Family and Children Services today. DEFACS will give the toys to children in foster care. Lee County Probation Officers have been collecting the toys since January.  

"Foster kids, I look at it like this, they are not with their families, they're with some good people taking care of them, but who are strangers to them and this is a way to show that we are supporting our local children our local families. Just knowing that we're putting a smile on a child's face is what it's all about," said Chief Charles Moore.       

This is the 13th year for this toy drive. They'll also deliver groceries to several families before Christmas.
