Albany- The Albany Civitan Club held its annual Christmas party Friday. Each year dozens of parents and special needs children celebrate the season with dinner and a visit from Santa.
Organizers say the party helps the kids from feeling left out. "I'm a special education teacher as well, so yes they get left out of a lot of community events because they don't have transportation, they're no aware of what's going on in the community, so they're left out," says Civitan Club President Elizabeth Faircloth
The Civitan Club offers activities throughout the year for special needs children. They also have a summer camp, Valentine's party, and Halloween celebration.
The Albany Exchange Club is also reaching out to children, making Christmas bright for about two dozen deserving young people.
Every year Exchange Club members invite foster children to their Christmas party. They call it an Exceptional Christmas. The kids eat dinner with the members and take home more gifts than they can hold. [
"We enjoy the children enjoying the presents and all the joy it brings to them. It's a lot more fun for us to see them receiving and us giving, than it is to receive the same ourselves," says Albany Exchange club President Clayton Smith
Smith says the club raises money all year for the event... and most of the money for the party comes from the annual Exchange Club Fair.
