ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Exchange Club gave one of their highest awards Friday evening by naming their Golden Deeds award recipient of the year.

89- year-old Charlie Phillips was named this year's Golden Deed award winner.

The winner of the award must improve the community throughout the year without seeking recognition.

Phillips is with the SOWEGA Council on aging and helps builds ramps for the disabled in the community.

"He is somebody that has gone out in the community and taken his own time out. This is not a paid thing, it's a volunteer thing for him and he really puts his heart and soul into making sure good ramps are built," said Golden Deeds Chairman Chuck Knight.

This is the 65th year the Golden Deeds award has been handed out.
