Albany - - Christmas is coming early for some Albany youngsters.

Students in Dougherty County's Pre-Kindergarten program will soon have a new playground, thanks to some area college students.

Students at LaGrange College presented a check for $3,000 to the school Thursday.

The new playground will benefit special-needs students who aren't able to use the school's current playground.

The college students raised the money through a golf tournament.

"It went well. Most of the students didn't know that much about golf but we had a few students that did and we were able to be successful," says student Annie Stubbs.

"With children who have special needs, often they are also physically limited and can not play on standard play equipment. They are not able to climb as well, they sometimes have a great fear of certain pieces of equipment," says School Director Rochelle Bush.

The school hopes to have the new playground ready for kids to enjoy in a month.
