I would try toys for tots, angel tree and local churches in your area. Call or stop in and ask if they do gift handout for needy children.
There are so many of us in your same exact position, we have not had a christmas since 2004 when the hurricanes took everything from us but we still carry on. There are more important things than material gifts, we also have children and they do understand and help make the holidays happy even when we do not have money or a holiday meal.
Instead of focusing on the things you do not have, focus on those things you do have and make those the showcase of your holiday season. Do you have a roof over your heads, food int he fridge or cupboards? Do you have clothes, able to buy school supplies etc?? Do you have a vehicle or internet, cell phones etc?? Think of those things you do have and remember many of us do not have those luxuries.
Here are some links to resources in Gainsville, GA (Hall County) that might be of assistance. I also have links to national organizations: Catholic Charities, red cross, salvation army, St vincent de paul, United way/211, etc on my homepage that may be of assistance.
housing payment assitance
health care programs
household items - free or low cost
after school programs
apartment rental listings
job training/ referral
