Counterfeit Items to be given to the needy

July 7, 2004

Albany - In October, the Dougherty County Sheriff's Department seized counterfeit designer clothes being sold at the Millennium Mall in East Albany. Today, Sheriff Jamil Saba turned the goods over to World Vision Albany, a Christian humanitarian organization. "We feel like we're helping somebody that can use these clothes," said Saba.

Reverend Jim Ewings of World Vision Albany explained "We work a wonderful assessment process to make sure those partners we have are actually having direct contact with those who are living in poverty so those people that really need them get them."

World Vision will use some of the items as part of its work program, which provides clothes for people going on job interviews.
