Boys & Girls Club Receives Gift

October 17, 2007

Albany - - An Albany restaurant donates some of its proceeds to help area teenagers.

Wednesday, Taco Bell managers presented a $7500 check to the Boys and Girls club.

Leaders of the group say they'll use the money to reach out to teens.

"Many times we have smaller kids who come to the Boys and Girls Club on a regular basis. We want to make sure that is extended all the way up through high school," says Dr. Ernest Benson.

"We feel that the Boys and Girls Club makes the strongest impact on our youth particularly in Albany," says Bobby Parker of Taco Bell.

Albany Taco Bells have contributed more than $22,000 to support the Boys & Girls Club's programs in recent years.
