THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL)-- A home invasion didn't stop two South Georgia residents from helping kids and their families in need this Christmas. You may remember Gary Johnson and Dorris Hills from our story earlier this month. Robbers held them at gunpoint at their home early in November. Since then they have been working hard to replace the toys that were stolen. On Christmas, Johnson says they handed out toys to 300 kids and clothes to men and women. Johnson says his organization, The Brotherhood of Love, fed about 500 people a Christmas dinner.

Johnson says they wouldn't have been able to have this giveaway without help from the community in North Florida all the way to Albany,Ga.
