LaGrange College women help Liberty House women

Albany- Women from Lagrange College's Albany Campus collected boxes and baskets for Liberty House.

The baskets and boxes contained everything from toiletries to food and bedding. They also donated more than $1,600 to help the battered women who stay at the home temporarily.

"Some of us have personal experiences with Liberty House. Some of us know that women are in a bad situation when they come to Liberty House. Nine times out of ten, they come with just the shirts off their backs," says Pamela Jackson.

The items were collected from a donation drive in front of K-Mart a couple of weekends ago.  Many people from the community donated items and money.

Organizers say domestic violence is a serious problem in Albany. Liberty House is a safe haven for women.
