ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A mother got an amazing and unexpected helping hand this holiday season.

When Viyetta Jenkins was denied a loan to buy her children Christmas gifts, she went to Liberty Tax.

They don't offer Christmas loans, but the owner surprised her with a phone call.

He told her the office had gifts for her kids that were ready to be picked up.

Jenkins couldn't believe it.

"When I received the phone call I was so excited and ecstatic. I just called around and told people how happy I was and what had happened to me and stuff. I mean all I can say is there is a God," she said. "And it happened here at Liberty Tax, that's all I can say."

The happy mother praised the friendly atmosphere at the office.
