Dawson youth center hosts Christmas giveaway

DAWSON, GA (WALB) - About 200 kids went shopping for the perfect Christmas present Tuesday evening.

The Positive Direction Youth Center in Dawson hosted it's annual Christmas giveaway.

Kids came in and picked out gifts that were donated by the community.

Organizers said they were happy to see the excitement on the kids faces.

"It's just a blessing to us the community and the children and all the families that it's going to benefit from all of the items that have been donated to give the children a wonderful Christmas," said Dorothy Tomlin.

Santa Claus will be at the center next week to hand out the gifts that the children picked out Tuesday.
