Albany -- Two local non profits receive thousands of dollars to help continue their missions. The King Celebration Committee raised more than $20,000 at this year's King Day celebration.
That money was split between the Albany Civil Rights Museum and the Liberty House, a non profit shelter for abused women and children.
"This money is going to go a long way to refurbish that facility because we see hundreds of women and children come through our shelter every year, so this is a real blessing for us,"said Liberty House Executive Director Silke Deeley.
One thousand dollars was also donated to the King Center in Atlanta.
