ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany boy took time Saturday morning to make sure others who are not as fortunate get help.

6-year-old Jackson Harris sold coffee, hot chocolate, and doughnuts at his home to raise money for the Albany Advocacy Resource Center.

The center promotes the personal freedom and acceptance of people with disabilities.

Jackson wanted to donate his tooth fairy money to help ARC and came up with this idea to raise even more funds.

"It was about helping the ARC, we got up early to start getting money and we'll donate it right after," said Jackson Harris.

"He wanted to sell lemonade and I said it's not the right time of year, and he said what about coffee and doughnuts, I thought it was a brilliant idea. He came up with it last Saturday and we made posters and put it down our street," said Dacia Harris, Mother.

Despite the rain Jackson kept the stand open all morning and raised a little more than $200 for Albany ARC.
