ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Volunteers were honored Wednesday for giving their time to help east Albany seniors.

The James Gray Senior Center thanked nearly a dozen volunteers, handing out certificates and gift baskets and treating the volunteers to lunch.

Some of them have been giving their time at the center for more than 30 years.

Center officials say without them it would be impossible to keep the doors open.  And having this center fills a void in the lives of the people who come there.

Martha Corhen, a Volunteer Coordinator with the center said, "what they're here for is to keep from being at home by themselves. Some of them, their families are working, and some don't have anyone to be there with them."

One of the volunteers honored on Wednesday is still going strong at the age of 98.
