Albany -- A group of Albany women work together to better the community by hosting fundraisers and other charity events.

The albany junior league hosted a huge attic sale in the old belk building downtown.

Both active and former members collected their own things to sell at the big sale.

The money raised goes to various groups throughout the community such as the Flint Riverquarium.

Junior league members say it's a good event because it brings the community together and that many people find some good deals.

"Give the community an opportunity to purchase these things at an extremely reduced price and then the money goes to fund many of the charities that we sponsor and goes back into

Leftover items were donated to the local Habitat for Humanity and the old coats were given to the Central Monitoring "one warm coat" project.
