Albany - - An Albany business wants you to support them so they can support our senior citizens. 

U-Save-It Pharmacies are kicking off an October fundraiser to benefit the SOWEGA Council on Aging.

Next week, Albany U-Save-It stores will have contribution cans for customers to donate. The pharmacies will also donate some of their over the counter sales to the Council.  

"Some of these seniors, these are the only friends that they have. a lot of their family has passed away and these centers mean a lot to them and we just want them to continue having this place to go visit," Jay Sharpe says.

On October 3rd, the pharmacy will hold its fundraiser kick off at the Senior Center on Pine Ave.

On October 20th, there will be an attic sale from 7 AM to 1 PM at 202 Broad Avenue.

Later that night you can attend a silent auction with dessert, coffee and champagne at the Carnegie Library after the Albany Symphony Concert.
