Donations needed for Mayors' Christmas Motorcade

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Recreation and Parks Department is encouraging you to donate to the annual Christmas Mayors' Motorcade.

You can donate toiletry items, games, and clothes that will go to those in Georgia's mental health hospitals.
Mayor Dorothy Hubbard is the Statewide Chair of this year's event.
Items collected here will be taken to Central State Hospital in Milledgeville on December 1st.

"The whole idea behind it is to show the people who are in our state mental health hospitals that there are people who care about them,” said Kristin Caso, Albany Recreation and Parks Department. “So many of them don't have families that come visit them. So without this program they wouldn't have a Christmas at all."  

You can drop off donations at the Recreation Department in Tift Park or the Mayor's office downtown through Wednesday.
