Some children in Dawson received an early Christmas

DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

More than 150 children at Dawson's Positive Direction Youth Center celebrated Christmas Wednesday at a big party just for them.

The kids got to shop in the center's Christmas store and pick out any gift they wanted.

Those gifts were wrapped and Santa Claus delivered them with a little help from the Dawson Fire Department.

“It means so much to me to be able to see this much enthusiasm in the community with the parents coming out and the children just enjoying so much tonight,” said Dorothy Tomlin.

Most of the toys at the center's Christmas store were donated by Toys R Us.
