ALBANY, GA (WALB) - First United Methodist Church and Stonebridge Golf and Country Club join forces to bring Christmas to those in need.

Once a year the Monday before Christmas week Hearts of Stonebridge staff give out toys, blankets and clothes.

The yearly country club golf tournament donates money for gifts for the event.

A Christmas dinner was made along with a special guest that always lights up the room.

Bill Bowles the General Manager of Stonebridge Golf and Country Club said, "There was smiles, there was applause, there was people coming up and thanking the chefs for the great meal and then when Santa Claus made his entrance and the gifts were given, you know the big kids became small kids, it's a beautiful thing."

Hearts of Stonebridge team served about 200 people and they are already planning next year's event.
