Chief Adams says his department has been "overwhelmed" by the number of youngsters who are without.
Not just from Hartford, but throughout Geneva County.
He now has a list of 50 children who need warm clothes and toys this Christmas.
With Hurricane Katrina evacuees now living in the Wiregrass, the demand has increased 10-fold.
If you would like to help the children or need more information on the effort, contact the police department at 588-2222.
