ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Nearly 200 foster children will have the joy of unwrapping holiday gifts this season thanks to some Good Samaritans.

Junior League of Albany members wrapped hundreds of presents to give to the Lily Pad SANE Center.

The initiative will give each child, up to 18-years-old, one or two gifts donated by local businesses and community members.

The gift-wrapping event has been a tradition for the League for more than a decade.

"It's uplifting the way that our community and our League supports this," said program chair, Jenny Collins.

The children will receive the gifts in the next few weeks.
