Christmas came a little early for one Chattanooga children's home.

Local man, Edwin Ledfort says he's always trying to help someone somewhere. And Friday, he went to the Chambliss Center for Children with a surprise in tow, over eight thousand dollars.

Ledfort says his heart told him to check on a children's home, and that's when he starting organizing fundraisers.

According to Ledfort, the home was in need of everything from baby wipes to children's clothes.
