Mayors' Christmas Motorcade Delivers Holiday Cheer to Georgia Regional Patients

SAVANNAH, GA -

Mayors from across southeast Georgia will come together in Savannah Wednesday to provide a brighter holiday for those in need and raise awareness of the needs of Georgia's mental hospitals.

Leaders from dozens of cities will gather at the National Guard Armory on Eisenhower Drive at 10 am December 4, bringing with them gifts donated by citizens of their communities. The mayors will then travel motorcade-style to Georgia Regional Hospital, where gifts will be delivered to deserving patients.

The Mayors' Christmas Motorcade started in 1958 by the Georgia Municipal Association at the request of then- Governor Ernest Vandiver as a way of providing holiday gifts for the patients of Georgia's mental health hospitals.

There are currently seven regional mental hospitals in the state, serving some 3,200 Georgians.
