Albany -- A group of students from LaGrange College in Albany donated more than $1,400 in equipment and gifts to the Sunshine Center. LaGrange student Eddie Watson presented a gift card to Center Director Rosalynn Fowler this morning.

The Cohort Number Ten from LaGrange College of Albany decided they wanted to join together and help the Children's Advocacy Center.  The Sunshine Center, which is operated by Open Arms, helps with the interview process for abused children, making it less stressful.

The class gave the center televisions and electronic equipment used for taping victim interviews, and a lunch to honor the center's counselors.

LaGrange College student Joyce Baranski said "We wanted to do something for the good of the community, and particularly children in the community."

"People come in, doing things like this, and have the same passion, the same vision that we have as far as serving child abuse victims, and it means a lot," said Sunshine Center Director Rosalynn Fowler. 

The LaGrange College of Albany students have also pledged to repair several areas of the Sunshine Centers Building.
