Senior centers get funding

Albany-- The SOWEGA Council on Aging Senior Centers in three Southwest Georgia counties are getting a financial boost. U Save-it pharmacies has started donating a percentage of its over the counter sales to the centers.

Four locations in Albany, one in Lee County, and one in Grady County will donate to senior centers in the respective counties. The company says the centers play a critical role in the health and well-being of seniors in Southwest Georgia.

"Its a great organization, and it does a lot of great things for these seniors. It gives them a place to come and have fellowship, to meet friends and just to be able to get a nice hot meal and just to have something for them to do" said Jay sharpe with U Save-It pharmacies.

U Save-It pharmacies will also hold an attic sale October 20th at the old Owens Building in downtown Albany from 7 a-m to 1 p-m with all proceeds benefiting the senior centers.
