Healthy baby program spearheaded by K-Mart

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -   The Albany K-Mart is partnering with the March of Dimes to give mothers healthy pregnancy tips while raising money for the organization that promotes healthy babies.  

K-mart's 25th annual fundraising campaign to support the March of Dimes features a free brochure with "Ten Tips for Nine Healthy Months."

Clerks will collect donations for the organization at the register. With a quick click you can donate one... five... or ten dollars to March of Dimes.

Cashiers are also collecting change which adds up.

"It adds up because I usually, I sometimes run a register at the service desk to help out and I'll get change in that bucket, and by the end of my shift I've got 15 or 20 dollars in there, you'd be surprised, it adds up it really does," said Manager Phyllis Spears.

Customers can also sign up for the March for Babies in Albany Saturday April 25th at 9:30 in Riverfront Park.
