ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some small hands helped to fulfill a big Thanksgiving need for an Albany family.

Kids at Albany Technical College's Child Development Demonstration Center spent Tuesday afternoon filling boxes with canned goods and other food items.

Throughout November, parents and children collected the food for an Albany mother of six. They'll deliver the boxes along with a fresh turkey in time for Thanksgiving.  

"This is the first time we've done this. We've been trying to do some different things because of the things that are going on in the economy and we just wanted to let everyone know that Albany Tech does community outreach as well as a daycare so we actually wanted to give something back," said Albany Tech Parent Committee Advisor Tangela Clements.

The center plans to continue delivering a Thanksgiving meal each year. It helps the children learn the value of helping people in need.
