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.
We're just over a week away from the annual Albany Christmas parade, and this year organizers need your help.
The Festival of Christmas Trees began Friday in Sycamore. Their goal is to spread holiday cheer by giving back to the community.
Local businesses spent Friday preparing for their busiest shopping day of the year -- Small Business Saturday.
With the holiday season upon us, it's important to think about your furry friends too.
People formed a line around the Best Buy in Valdosta just to get inside so they could take advantage of the sweet deals.
