ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of children in South Georgia will be treated to a nutritious after-school snack, thanks to the generosity of a civic group.

The Kiwanis club of Dougherty County donated $4500 to the Boys and Girls Clubs Monday. That money will help pay for snacks for the more than 700 children who attend after school programs at 11 Southwest Georgia locations.

Ed Deming said, "A lot of the kids are having lunch at school at 11 or 12 o'clock and they go home at 7 or 8 o'clock in the evening, so a healthy snack is real important to them."

The donation was part of the $30,000 the Kiwanis club donated to community organizations this year.
