Christmas season in full swing for Georgia's 11th District Abate

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

It may not feel like Christmas yet, but that's not stopping the folks of Georgia's 11th District Abate from spreading a little holiday cheer Wednesday.

They're buying more than $6,000 worth of toys for children in nine counties.

It takes more than a few motorcycles to haul all of these gifts, though.

"We got a 16-foot box truck sitting outside waiting on us," said 'Junkyard' Jackson of Georgia Abate.

"We do this every year, and a lot of people think that when we do the toy run, it's over. But, it's just starting."

The money does come from the annual Toy Run, now in its 22nd year.
