ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Students have a new place to study at one of the Albany Boys and Girls Clubs locations.

Thursday the staff of SASCO Chemical Group toured the new technology center at the Jane Wilson unit in south Albany.

A $25,000 donation from the company paid for 20 new computers and a complete makeover.

Students have a new place to study at one of the Albany Boys and Girls Clubs locations.

Thursday the staff of SASCO Chemical Group toured the new technology center at the Jane Wilson unit in south Albany.

"The company and our family supported the club for the past 47-years so this is continuing a tradition in memory of our grandmother who passed last year, we're excited to revamp the technology center," said Marc Skalla, SASCO President.

The technology lab will be named after Mrs. "L" Carolyn Laschober who founded SASCO and encouraged others to back.

The kids gave company managers a giant thank you card for their generous support.
