Albany-Dougherty NAACP gives away toys to children ahead of Christmas

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany-Dougherty NAACP branch spent time giving away toys away to children on Friday.

The donated gifts were part of their their second annual Christmas Gifts of Love giveaway.

For 2014, the lucky recipients were children from the Preschool Academy Learning Center.

The NAACP gave away toys donated by sponsors, including Sam's and Kmart.

"For us, as the NAACP local branch here, to be able to see the joy and the smile on a child's face upon receiving an unexpected gift is priceless to us," said First Vice President Emma Quimbley.

The NAACP hopes to grow the event for next year, in order to give more toys to even more children.
