Valdosta, GA - "Love in Action with Compassion Inc" hosted it's fifth annual Hudson Dockett Community Center Christmas Celebration Monday. Dozens of children from Hudson Dockett got their pick of over 400 toys donated by the community. The Community Center's Facilitator, James Washington, says each year the children look forward to the Christmas Celebration.
"I think it's really important because Christmas is all about giving. The holiday season is all about being generous and just making sure that everyone has something. We can't be guaranteed that everyone is going to have the same Christmas as everyone else, so it's just really important that we can let everyone know, no matter where you are, that there's always someone and something there for you."
Washington says he hopes the Christmas Celebration will leave a lasting impact on the children by showing them that the community cares.
