VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –An organization received a much needed donation to serve abused children. 

 AT&T presented a $10,000 donation to the Children's Advocacy Center of Lowndes County.

 The money will allow the center to continue serving children in Berrien Cook and Lanier Counties who've been abused or who've witnessed domestic violence.

"This donation is so important to the Children's Advocacy Center because we use the money to go out to surrounding counties around Lowndes county and we're able to offer services to children that would otherwise not be able to receive these services," said Courtney Sheeley, Children's Advocacy Board Chair.

Legislators and board members for the Advocacy Center gathered for a photo to show their support of the award.
