Albany -- Students at Albany Middle School are in the giving spirit this Christmas. They are raising money for local non-profit organizations.

At the AMS Christmas program held this morning, The Salvation Army, the SOWEGA Council on Aging, The Albany Civil Rights Museum, and the American Cancer Society received donations raised by AMS students.

"We've worked real hard since school first started back in August to try to meet the needs of non-profit organizations that the kids picked. Dr. Whatley wanted us to get the kids involved in giving back to the community," said Jesse Massey, Albany Middle school.

Beginning in August students raised over $ 1,000through personal donations, bake sales and school dances. Of that money, each NPO received a check for $150 at today's Christmas program.
