Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal made Christmas brighter for hundreds of elementary school students in the Atlanta area. O'Neal brought gifts to nearly 800 kids at McDonough Academy and Fairview Elementary School in Henry County Monday morning.

This is the 15th year in a row that O'Neal has provided holiday cheer to underprivileged children around the country.

"Nothing is more rewarding than making a child's Christmas a little brighter when their families may not have the means," O'Neal said.

The NBA Hall of Fame member is known as Shaq-A-Claus for his special holiday deliveries.
Among the items he delivered this year are toys, non-perishable food items, socks and coats from a variety of non-profit groups.
