Albany Tech yard sales a success

September 16, 2005

Albany--Albany Technical College held their second yard sale in less than a week Friday to benefit hurricane victims.

Last Saturday's event was so successful that organizers decided to try it again, and the response from the Albany area is, once again, very helpful.

"The citizens of Dougherty County and Albany Georgia need to help our neighboring states and countrymen. Everybody needs to come out and show support, don't just set at home and say you feel sorry for them, we need to do something to show that we care about our neighbors" said Emmit Griswold an instructor at Albany Tech.

The yard sales raised about $2,000 for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The items leftover from the sale, will be donated to local organizations for further distribution.
