ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students and faculty at one Dougherty County elementary school donate $1000 to help Georgia burn victims.

Lincoln Elementary Magnet School second grade teacher Traseka Reed presents the check to Albany Fire Department Assistant Chief Sebon Burns. The money will go to the "Give Burns The Boot" fund of the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation to help burn victims and to fund fire prevention safety projects.

Reed said "We decided we would like to be involved in the charity of giving burns the boot, where we can go out and help the unfortunate people that have been burned."

Former Albany Fire Inspector Dan Harden was working with the school on the project when he was killed in a motorcycle crash. The school donated the money in his memory.
