Some less than fortunate kids find good fortune

December 20, 2005

Albany - The club donated $750 to the "Shop with a Deputy" program with the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office.

All of the money goes directly to help less fortunate kids. Teachers, counselors, and principals suggested students for participation in the program, students who may not have Christmas this year otherwise.

10 year old Tameshetta Byrd described her feelings about being chosen in one word, "Joyful."

Capt. Kevin Sproul says, "It's very important for these children, who might not have what we have, for us to give something back to them."

Each child received $100 to buy whatever they wanted for themselves or others. K-Mart gave them a discount and Ryan's Steakhouse fed everyone for free before they went shopping.
