The Masonic houses help east Albany kids

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of students waited in long lines in east albany for a Back to School Supply Drive. The Masonic order of albany helped kids in a major way.

Ten Masonic lodges bought over 200 book bags for school kids filled with paper, pens and pencils. Giving back is something Masons think of as investment in the future of albany. 

"We want to do whatever we can to help them. This is what we do, we serve and give back to the community," said Program Coordinator Sheila Redding.

The different Masonic lodges also plan to donate different toiletry items to Pines nursing home on August 6th at 2pm.
