Albany-- Phoebe Putney Hospital gives nearly a quarter million dollars to 24 area charities. Wednesday, the hospital's Community Grant Program handed out checks to the two dozen organizations, totaling $215,000.

Charities, like the Alzheimer's Association, Easter Seals and Lord's Pantry, got between $2,000 and $15,000.

"About 15% of the groups that came to us were brand new initiatives, groups that haven't traditionally received funding. Some hadn't even written proposals in the past, but they had a really good, creative idea about how to improve the health status in their community," said Phoebe Putney spokesman Darrell Sabbs.

More than 35 charities applied for the grant, requesting more than $700,000. Phoebe Putney also gave $10,000 to both the Red Cross and Salvation Army.
