MOULTRIE, Ga. — A Moultrie family will continue its Christmas tradition of sharing the joy of the holiday with the community and with people in need.

Hannah and Craig Kirkland decorate their house and yard at 1312 Third St. S.E. with Christmas lights and decor. They invite the community to drive past any night of the week.

But they have special plans for tonight, tomorrow and the next two Fridays and Saturdays. Santa Claus will be there 6-8 p.m. Dec. 3-4, 10-11 and 17-18 to welcome children and give them small gifts.

Meanwhile, the Kirklands will be accepting donations that will be directed to a local family in need.

“I don’t want people to feel like they have to donate,” Hannah Kirkland said in a prior interview. “We just do it because we do have people who want to help others, and we have some who cannot. We have some that bring canned goods and that’s their way of giving — they don’t have much, but that’s their way of giving. Others bring monetary donations, and that’s their way of giving. It’s just whatever you want to donate.”

The monetary donations will go to help a single mother and her four sons (three of whom are teenagers). Canned goods and other non-perishable foods will be given to the Colquitt County Food Bank.

For more information, you can call the Kirklands at (229) 891-0313.
