Local business honors troops

April 18, 2006

Albany-- One south Georgia business is getting ready to welcome home the troops of the 48th Brigade.

Since August, Classic Printing in Albany has sold nearly 200 shirts which honor the troops.

The price of the shirts range from ten dollars up to twenty dollars. For every shirt sold, five dollars will be donated to the National Guard Family Assistance Center.

So far the store has raised $800.

"With the people coming home, I felt like a lot of families will be in dying need of money because the husbands aren't making that much money overseas," says owner, Ben Lowe.

The store's owner plans to continue selling the shirts through May 15.
