ALBANY, N.Y. -- More than a dozen local families will receive gifts in time for Christmas thanks to Albany County's Adopt-A-Family Program.

The Democratic Albany County Legislators delivered the gifts throughout the day to needy families in the area. Household items, clothing, and toys were all delivered to their homes.

According to the legislators, there are many people across the region in need.

"It's really a sad situation out there that we never realize, but after doing this for approximately 28 years now, you see many cases where there's much more need then we can even think about," said Frank Commisso, Albany County Legislature Majority Leader.

Money raised from a spaghetti dinner went towards the program, and gifts were collected with the help of volunteers.
