Cookie fundraiser to benefit south Georgians living with learning disabilities

December 3, 2007

Albany--A group dedicated to serving south Georgians living with a wide range of disabilities needs your help during the holidays.

For more than three decades now, the Albany Advocacy Resource Center has played an integral role in helping people living with mental disabilities find jobs, provide housing, and pay for medicine.

To continue doing so, ARC is relying on your "sweet tooth" for help this Christmas.  The organization is kicking off its second annual cookie fundraiser.

They have a variety of cookies for sell, including: chocolate chip, chocolate chunk, chocolate cranberry, chocolate trio, chunky peanut butter, oatmeal raisin, sugar, and white chunk macadamia.

Three dozen cookies (small) will cost you $24.00, five dozen (medium) will cost you $40.00, and seven dozen (large) will cost you $56.00.

The cookies are available in boxes or decorative tins.  To make a purchase, just visit AARC located at 901 Pine Avenue, or call 229-432-5320.

If you don't want to purchase cookies, your money donations are still very much APPRECIATED.  The money is going toward a very good cause.
