ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany service club is honored for raising money to fight child abuse.

The Exchange Club of Albany is one of the top 25 money raising clubs in the country.

The 178 members raised more than $31,000 last year. They use that money to support the club's national project, Child Abuse Prevention.

Exchange Club of Albany President Larry Sculley said  "We do keep that money here, and benefit the other organizations in town that help other people, in particular kids."

The Exchange Club of Albany donates money to almost 30 care organizations in Albany.

Two of the club's projects, the Exchange Club Fair and the United Kennel Club Winter Classic are among the top economic events in the city.
