ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Families flooded the Civic Center during the 2008 Kids Expo put together by Dougherty for Children. "This is the event Dougherty for Children puts on every year," said director, Ann Stokes.
"There is a lot of people out here and the more you can get your information out. You never know who's going to get it," said director of the Albany Autism Center, Diane Blocker.
70 organizations provided 800 parents and children with information about their services."That is the main problem families have, they don't know where to go, They don't know what services are available," said Stokes. And this event works to change that.
Everything from recreation to education, " we teach kids about nutritious snacks. You know have an apple, banana or carrots instead of candy sometimes," said Johny Wishan of Harvey's Supermarket.
Safety was also highlighted. "We have a kitchen, living room and bedroom inside, and we are teaching them how to get of any part of the house safely," said Albany Fire Safety Inspector, Johnnie Jackson.
"People just kind of randomly come and pick up information. When they get home they will look through it all," said Blocker. And maybe they will find something that will help compliment their parenting in Dougherty County. Click here for more information on Dougherty for Children.
