Free supplies makes kids and parents happy

August 3, 2002

by Jocelyn Maner

Two South Georgia organizations are making sure students start school with the supplies they need.

The Albany Housing Authority and the Shriner's Club sponsored a free supply give-a-way today. More than 200 bags of supplies were given away to these kids.

Organizers say no children should start school without the tools they need to learn.   Event organizer, Edgar Martin says, "This is just one of our projects because of course we're interested in the welfare of our children." 

The supplies are donated for people and businesses in the community, and are given by both the Shiner's Club and the Albany Housing Authority.
