DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

A group of Terrell County students got to pick out their Christmas gifts a little early.

The "Spirit of Christmas" shop was set up for students in the positive direction youth center on Thursday. 

The center is a non-profit organization that provides free care for kids after school. 

The majority of gifts in this store were donated by Toys-R-Us.

Kids could pick out two gifts and put them under the tree.

On December 15th Santa will visit the center and hand the gifts out to the children. 

"It's just a wonderful experience to see the bright faces and the happy faces and them thinking what am I going to choose," said organization founder Dorothy Tomlin. 

If you are interested in helping out the center is still taking monetary donations for the older kids to go pick out gifts. 

You can drop money off at the Terrell County Resource Center or mail a check to Positive Direction, PO Box 402 in Dawson, GA 39842.
