March 16, 2007

Albany--Victims of the recent tornadoes in Southwest Georgia are getting another helping hand in relief from some giving neighbors. Albany Technical College is now accepting donations of items such as: personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies, paper plates, school supplies, insect repellant, and non-perishable food items.

Albany Tech faculty members say they felt the need to help out after seeing the devastation and also having co-workers affected. "We were watching the news that night, and it was just so devastating when we saw all the things that had happened and hearing all the different stories from different people, and then we had someone here at the college that was affected and she had pictures she was showing and it really, really touched our hearts" said Sarah Spurlin with Albany Technical College. 

If you would like to donate items, you can do so by dropping them off at the Kirkland Building or Building B, Room 203 through March 21st from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Albany Technical College will not be able to accept donations of clothes, shoes, or furniture.
