ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Club Vybe owners are hosting a back-to-school drive for families. On Saturday, they collected more than 50 backpacks for kids. They also provided a bounce house for kids, haircuts, a car wash, and sold snow cones. They raised more than $600 which will go towards buying school supplies for kids.

"I feel like whatever God is blessed us with it is our responsibility to the young people to try to show them that God is about love and about giving,” said Troy Smith, Club Vybe Owner.

Saturday night the club is hosting a Back-to-school fundraiser for high school students from 8:00 to 11:00 p.m. On Sunday, they will pass out the school supplies from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at their club location on Flint Ave. They will also offer free haircuts for kids.
