Tifton DFACS receives Christmas check


The Tifton Division of Family and Children Services got a special Christmas gift Thursday. Golden Living presented a $1, 000 check to the organization  at the DFCS offices. The money will be used to help purchase presents for foster children this holiday season.

"It's tough enough to be in a foster home and not to be with your family if you're not able to. It's just nice to be able to have the privilege of having a gift to open up Christmas morning," said Jerry Ethridge, Golden Living Director of Nursing.

DFCS representatives say more than 150 kids will be helped this year. Golden Living picks an organization each year to give a donation for the holidays. They're also donating to the Alzheimer's Association.
