Albany4One crime watch block party

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A group of Christians say they're working to make Albany a better place to live.

On Saturday Albany4One held a block party at Carver Park on Albany's Southside.

There were carnival games, food, and bike giveaways.

Organizers tell us positive events like this help to steer kids away for heading down the wrong path.

"Instead of talking about our city and talking about the issues and problems we wanted to come together and stop the talk and get to work. Come over here and bring Albany together, we're speaking out against gangs," said Daniel VanCleave, Central Baptist Assoc. Pastor.

Seven churches were represented, and close to 60 volunteers and a number of sponsors made the event possible.

Albany4One will hold the crime watch parties the first Saturday of every month at least through December.
