MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Some lucky children in Middle Georgia will be having a merry Christmas this season, thanks to the generosity of Toys 4 Tots and the Georgia State Patrol (GSP).
The GSP came by 41NBC this afternoon to collect toys that were donated to the Toys 4 Tots collection boxes located in the lobby.
“It’s amazing to see the families come together and be able to help them through some tough times they have,” said Sgt. First Class Crystal Zion of the GSP.
Sgt. Zion says that even though Christmas is just a few short days away, it’s never too late to help a child.
“We collect all the way through Christmas,” Sgt. Zion said. “We have families that come in last minute that need more, and haven’t had any help, or they’ve lost a job or whatever the case is. So help through Christmas and even a couple days after trying to make sure these kids have Christmas.”
The Georgia State Patrol says that it’s been a tough year for Toys 4 Tots with shortages in collections, and even last minute donations are helpful.
If you would like to donate, you can do so by contacting your local State Patrol post.
