Bags 4 Buddies drive ready to begin

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany civic group is asking you to donate old suitcases and other bags to help children. The Junior League of Albany will collect the old luggage during their Bags four Buddies Drive in November. The Junior League will give these bags to the Department of Family and Children's Services to pack the luggage when they quickly have to move children to another home.

1. Wells Fargo Financial Advisors - 618 N. Westover Blvd, Albany

2. Mauldin & Jenkins - 2303 Dawson Road, Albany

3. Backstage Hair Salon - 1904 Dawson Road, Albany
