TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Christmas gifts came a little early for some Tallahassee children.

Remember those toys collected last week during Mayor Andrew Gillum's 5th Annual Holiday Toy Drive?

Tuesday afternoon, those gifts made some kids quite happy. The toys were given out at the Joe Louis Apartment Complex on Joe Louis Street.

Mayor Gillum says they do this every year as a way to give back the community and spread holiday cheer. 

More toys will be given out at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Oliver Hill Center at the Orange Apartments.
