Albany -- The Albany Exchange club brought an early Christmas to some children Friday night.

They held a big holiday dinner for club members and under privileged families.

This year the Exchange club gave gifts to twenty children.

It's an annual event exchange club members look forward too all year.

"We bring in underprivileged kids that different agencies refer to us and we have them in and Santa Claus will show up tonight and hand out gifts. With the national exchange club, our big project is child abuse prevention and this is a way to help these kids and make their lives better," said Exchange Club President, Chuck Knight.

The club is able to sponsor events like this because of the money they make putting on the Exchange Club Fair each fall.
