Doctor staff donate school supplies, clothes

August 3, 2007

Albany -- Area students will have new school supplies, thanks to the generous donations of one local medical group.

The employees of Southwestern Emergency Physicians bought school supplies and donated them to area students Friday. They gave away backpacks, folders, papers and even school uniforms. The donations are usually done anonymously, but this year the employees decided to announce it to the public. They say it's their way to show Albany they care.

"We as the members of Southwestern Emergency Physicians, we care about what goes on in the community and this is just our way of illustrating it and giving back," Dr. Mana Kasongo.

The Southwestern Emergency Physicians had 150 backpacks to give away today. If your are a family who was unable to pick up school supplies, you can call the Department of Family and Children Services and they can assist you.
