Tallahassee Heights United Methodist Church offered free babysitting Friday night from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Parents taking advantage of the program say it gives them time to shop and wrap gifts so they don't have to stay up late on Christmas Eve.
"This is such a wonderful service because it gives us a chance to have our children where they're safe and gonna have a good time and we have down time to go and wrap presents and do our last minute things that we'd like to do to get ready for Christmas," said Rhonda Mayfield as she kissed her kids goodbye for the evening.
All of the babysitters are volunteering their time as a way to give back to the community.
