Lee County family uses Christmas lights display to help others

LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

For the 20th year, a Lee County family sets up their Christmas lights display at their home on Story Lane....collecting donations for those in need.

John and Gina Clay set up the display every year on Thanksgiving Day and keep it up until a few days after Christmas.

There are free train rides, hot chocolate and you can meet Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Grinch.

The Clays says it gets bigger every year.

”We do it for the community. We love it, the kids love it. We we're kind of thinking of not doing it anymore because it's gotten bigger. We had some protest from that. They wanted us to continue doing. But were try to do it to help families that need help at Christmas time and all of our donations we get we give to families,” said Gina Clay.

The lights are turned on at 6 p.m. every night.

You can see Santa on Friday, Saturday and occasionally on Sunday's.

The Clay's collect donations to help families in need.
