Sesame Street characters visit Atlanta Children's Shelter

Some famous and fuzzy faces paid a visit to an Atlanta shelter.

Friday Sesame Street's Elmo and Abby Cadabby dropped in at the Atlanta Children's Shelter which helps homeless families and kids get into stable housing.

Kids got a chance to interact with characters taking pictures and getting plenty of hugs!

Organizers said it was a great opportunity for many of the children to have the kind of care-free fun they don't always get to experience.

Friday's visit also coincided with Sesame Street's "F Is for Friends" Mall Tour which will make a stop at North Point Mall on Saturday.
