Albany -- Sam's Club of Albany gives a big check to Albany Firefighters Monday to help match the money they raised for Jerry's Kids.  

Sam's Club gave a check for one thousand dollars to Albany Firefighters Monday morning. Last August Firefighters passed the boot, raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

They raised one thousand dollars, and Sam's Club decided to match that amount. "The Fire Department I think is a big asset to the city. To be able to be part of what they were doing is just a great thing to us, so this is an avenue for us to give back to the city," said Sam's Club Assistant Mgr. Herbert Brown.  

The money raised will go to research in the fight against Muscular Dystrophy.
