Mayors from across southeast Georgia will converge in Savannah today to provide a brighter holiday for those who are sometimes forgotten.
The 57th annual Mayors’ Christmas Motorcade gets underway at 10 a.m.
Mayors from dozens of cities in the region will travel motorcade-style to Georgia Regional Hospital, bringing donated gifts to deserving patients.
The Mayors’ Christmas Motorcade was started in 1958. The program is aimed at raising awareness of the needs of Georgia’s mental hospitals.
There are currently seven regional mental hospitals in the state, serving some 3,200 Georgians.
