ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Santa's helpers teamed up Thursday to help deliver lots of toys to more than 200 children in Dougherty County.

The Salvation Army teamed up with the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots to to drop some presents to the Albany ARC Thursday morning. This year is the 10th year the two have teamed up to make the christmas deliveries. They've been taking donations since mid-October.

"There's many children that fall through the cracks. This is the Salvation Army and Toys for Tots way of reaching out to find those children," said Charles Goodroe, Advisory Board with Salvation Army.

"Tears are in all of our eyes. It's for all of our children at ARC," said Lou Lee, ARC Community Resource Person .

The presents will be given to around 60 kids of clients at the ARC. The rest of the gifts were dropped off at Faith Community Outreach Center and Lily Pad Center.
