SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Mayors from southeast Georgia will be in Savannah on Wednesday to help those in need as part of 52nd Annual Mayors' Christmas Motorcade.
Mayors will gather at 10 a.m. Dec. 8 at the National Guard Armory on Eisenhower Drive, bringing gifts donated by citizens of their communities. The mayors will then travel in a motorcade to Georgia Regional Hospital, where the gifts will be delivered to patients.
The Mayors' Christmas Motorcade began in 1958 by the Georgia Municipal Association at the request of then-Gov. Ernest Vandiver as a way of providing holiday gifts for the patients of Georgia's mental health and retardation hospitals.
The program also aims to raising the awareness of the needs of Georgia's mental hospitals.
