Mama Irene saves Christmas

From Hinesville, Ga. (with embedded video):

It’s a Christmas shopping spree. Hundreds of people line up outside St. Philip’s Episcopal Church on a mission is to find toys. “It’s very fun because 3 and 4 year olds, I have a 3-year-old nephew, it’s exciting to help kids because they’re so happy about it,” said Kissimee Herring who spent the day helping people pick out toys.

Irene Myers collects toys to give to underprivileged children at Christmas time. This is her 7th year in the running. This year she was able to serve more than 700 kids, thanks to people in the community and a big donation from Clyde’s Market. Irene even stored them in her dining room until the big day. “It’s been a joy because I saw them lined up and I was like, yes,” said Irene Myers.

Maybe the real story though is how it was all made possible.
