ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany civic club gives a very generous donation to a child advocacy center.

Exchange Club of Albany President Wilson Holloway presented a check for $10,000 to the Open Arms Incorporated Executive Director Wednesday morning.

Fonda Strong said donations are down for the center that shelters runaway, homeless, and abused children.

Open Arms Inc. Executive Director Fonda Strong said  "It couldn't have come at a better time. We've seen a decrease in receiving our children from the Department of Juvenile Justice and Department of Family and Children Services. So we couldn't have come at a better time."

Open Arms recently moved to a smaller office on Pine Avenue to save money.
