East Albany residents brings cheer to the community

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some East Albany residents are giving back and making sure kids are ready for school.

Dozens of people showed up for a day of fun at Shackleford Park.

Families enjoyed lots of free activities and food, plus organizers gave away some free school supplies. They say they're just trying to give back and spread some cheer around the area.

“Instead of kids being in the street and getting into trouble, we wanted to give them something to do today. But we have such a bad connotation with the east side. We wanted everyone to know that it's not all bad. We do something positive things in the East side,” said Kimberly Hall.

They gave out backpacks, pencils, pens, and folders to young people.
