Girl group gives back

December 18, 2007

Albany - - A group of Albany youngsters took time Tuesday to help out a bunch of folks who are young at heart.

Children 10 to 12 years old who participate in the Girls Inc. program stopped by the SOWEGA Council on Aging.

They wrapped Christmas Presents for Meals on Wheels recipients. The girls say doing community projects like this is nothing new to them.

"Its just good to help. Its called community service, its good to help older people. Its called respect," says 11 year old Alexandra Dent.

Council on Aging leaders say they sure do appreciate the young people's help.

These are the only presents many of their clients will get during the holidays.
