ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
An organization dedicated
to caring for children with disabilities received a generous donation from a major
company in Albany Wednesday. Procter and Gamble
presented Megan's house with a check for $1000.
organization offers respite care for children up to 17-years-old, but relies
solely on donations to operate.
"So this donation actually
makes the respite care possible. It goes
toward keeping the doors open as well as paying for respite care so that
families can access it whether they have the ability to pay or not," said Nicki
Wilson, Director of Respite & Family
Wilson said all the money
goes directly to those in need, and will help pay for 10 days of respite care
"We've been supporting Megan's
House for a couple years now, and we just think it's just so important...when
you think about families with children in need, they need a break
sometimes. And Megan's House gives them
that break, and I think it's just so important," said Vince Falcione,
Procter & Gamble External Relations Manager.
Wilson said donations help the
organization provide services to up to 50-families a year. Megan's House is still looking for donors
during October and November.
