VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –AT&T presented a $10,000 check to the Children's Advocacy Center in Valdosta Wednesday.

The donation will help make up for a $25,000 deficit, help the center improve its child abuse and prevention services, and upgrade its communication system.

Center leaders say they're thankful for the support they've gotten from AT&T over the past few years to help them serve six counties.

"It means so much to families and children in this area," said Courtney Brinson with AT&T. "It's just a charity that we feel strongly about."

"We served over 400 children last year," said Brenda Hodges with CAC.  "In that 82 percent of those have been sexually abused 10 percent witnessed domestic violence or even homicide, and then another eight percent were severe physical abuse."

AT&T also presented a check for $1,250 to the Valdosta Technical College Foundation for scholarships.
