"No one should be robbed of their Christmas, especially a child," says Jeremy Allen, of Kids Yule Love. 

So, he and others stepped up to turn things around.

"We had like 8 bags of toys for the children, so it was great, and we had some clothes and canned goods also," he explained.

The home owner, Brittany Hadley, wants to know why her house burned on Christmas morning. The loss included all the gifts she planned to give her godchildren.

Investigators suspect arson.  They say there are signs that someone forced their way into the home, before it caught fire.

"No matter if it was an arson. There's still someone that cares," said Hadley.

Besides Santa Claus, the children received a visit from the Ghostbusters and the Macon-Bibb fire department. 

"The community did step up. They stepped up hard for us," said Allen.

The children, toddlers to 12 years old, are too young to realize the loss.

"They don't understand what happened. Only the 12 and the 8 year old kind of understands, " says Hadley.

The family is hoping that investigators will solve the case, and provide answers and closure to what turned out to be a devastating Christmas day.

Anyone with additional information on the fire is encouraged to call the Georgia Arson Hotline at 1-800-282-5804.

Kids Yule Love is still accepting donations, such as clothes, for the family.  If you're looking to give; contact the organization at 478-741-3032.
