Children from The Methodist Home go on a shopping spree

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Methodist Home Christmas Shopping event was held Thursday night at the Kohl’s department store in Macon.

Local donors, or “Christmas Angels” as they were called, were able to do their part in making sure 78 children in need had a Merry Christmas.

Danny Harrison of Harrison Construction took the children, who live at The Methodist Home, on a shopping spree.

“It’s just a great opportunity to do God’s work,” Harrison said. “[I’m] just really lucky to have the friends and customers to get behind me and really help make this happen.”

The wide-eyed youths were able to peruse the aisles for anything that caught their attention, with each child allowed to spend $300 dollars on themselves or for loved ones.

Harrison has been contributing to the Methodist Home for about ten years. This year, he was able to raise over $22,000 from nearly 90 donors.
