ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Fire Department donated 60 prom dresses to help young girl burn victims across the state Friday.

Albany Fire Department Inspector Dan Harden donated the 60 dresses to the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation. They host a camp for young burn victims each year in Winder, and girls ages 7 to 17 will enjoy a prom during the camp.

"We are going to be able to really dress up," said McKenzy Bailey with the Foundation. "And get really excited. We do makeup, we do hair.  It's just a fantastic day for them to really be celebrated and have a great dance."

The Burn foundation supports medical facilities and assists burn survivors in their recovery.
