ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Home Depot is helping to build up the community starting with a free workshop for the youth.

The first Saturday of each month they hosts how-to clinics.

Children ages five to 12 accompanied by an adult use their skills to create objects and small projects that can be used in and around their homes or communities.

Since 1997 more than 17 million educational projects have been built at Kids Workshop's.

Today in Albany many of the young ladies from Girls Inc. And other young people attended this month's workshop and hammered together bean bag toss games.

"Home Depot wants to show we support the community, so the all around thing is for them to come out have a good time and let the community know we care about the children and we support them," said Catina Dawson, Team Depot Coordinator.

Along with their newly constructed project, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot associates' aprons and an achievement pin.
