Kids learn the real reason for the season

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Some Albany kids baked and sold sweet treats for one dollar to help other children in need.

Deerfield Windsor 2nd grade boys held the bake sale to raise money for St. Jude Children's hospital.

For several hours Friday afternoon they sold the baked goods at Advanced Rehab on Westover Boulevard.

Parents say it teaches the kids the real reason for the season.

"It teaches them there are other people in the world that need help and it's nice to give back to the community during this hard time so we want our kids to focus on other people during this season," Shellie Gay, Parent.

The boys raised about $400 to donate to St. Jude's.
