ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Young professionals in Albany are coming together to collect clothes for people in need.

Emerge Albany started its clothing drive May 1st for people who plan to enter the workforce. Those folks are recovering addicts getting treatment at Graceway and The Anchorage.

People can donate professional and casual clothes for those who are also going through job skills training and education.

You can drop off items at the Chamber of Commerce, Watson Spence Law Office, the clerk's office at the Dougherty County Courthouse, or Proctor and Gamble.

"A lot of opportunities are opening up and we just need the right people who have the skills and desire to go back to work," said Organizer Sarah Kjellin. "We want to assist those people in anyway we can so they can go back into the workplace looking like they work there and ready to go."

The clothing drive will last through May 26th. If you are unable to drop off items at the following locations or have questions regarding the clothing drive, call Sarah Kjellin at 229-317-2456.
