Christmas Comes to Underprivileged Kids

December 20, 2009

Columbus, GA-Kids at the EE Farley apartments off Brown Ave. got a Christmas celebration this Saturday thanks to a former resident.

Jeffrey Wright, who now lives in Atlanta and owns a successful business, comes back to his childhood home every year to give the current children a brighter Christmas.       

This year he held a toy drive for kids.

Wright says that he hopes his story will serve as an inspiration for hope.

The kids also had the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of 20 new bikes.

Each child between the ages of 5 and 17 received a Christmas bundle.
