ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Despite the bad economy, one of Albany's older service clubs continues its long tradition of giving to those in need at Christmas.

The Exchange Club of Southwest Georgia donated two thousand dollars to the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office and the Salvation Army today.

For the 5th year the Exchange Club is sponsoring the Shop with the Sheriff program.

December 21st the Sheriff will take kids in need to Ryans for lunch and then Christmas Shopping at K-Mart.

Sheriff Kevin Sproul said "To see them shop for their own family, because a lot of them will buy items for their own family, not just for themselves. So it's a neat venture."

Salvation Army Captain Douglas McClure said "Also for the number of children and families, the homeless, the precariously housed and all definitions in between, I say thank you."

The Salvation Army will use their donation to help their shelter program.
