NORMAN PARK, GA (WALB) -

Norman Park Police are asking the community to help make Christmas for Tennessee wildfire victims a little brighter this year. 

For the past couple of days, Norman Park's police and fire departments have collected several gifts for adults and children who have lost everything they had to the wildfires in Gatlinburg.

Chief Chuck Snyder said this is the first time the department has collected gift donations.

He said this cause hits close to home.  

"It's the small things at Christmas time that sometimes means the most," said Chief Snyder.  "We were actually in contact with the fire department in Gatlinburg.  They said that some of the families that were public safety officials, that were out on the front lines during the whole thing, lost their homes."

Items can be dropped off at Norman Park City Hall through December 15th. 

The Norman Park Fire Chief will deliver the gifts next Friday.
