ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A senior center in Albany has gotten some much needed help to keep their doors open. A $1,000 check was presented to the James H. Gray senior center Monday morning.

The money came from the H.E.A.R.T. Organization out of Procter and Gamble. The group donates resources to worthy causes across the country. H.E.A.R.T. was solicited for help by a volunteer who saw the need at the center.

"It's wonderful just to see this center still go head on, just to take care of these our elder people. And if we can't do something for them who else can," said volunteer, Martha Corhen. The money will be used to provide food for the senior citizens.

Earlier this year, the center received a total of $40,000 dollars from both the county and city commissions to help keep its doors open.
