ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Today is Giving Tuesday; A day to encourage you to give to your favorite charity.
WALB is partnering with Phoebe Putney to raise money for Children's Miracle Network. Phoebe is the only Children's Miracle Network hospital in our 19-county area and treats more than 7,200 children annually.
CMN relies solely on donations to help babies born prematurely, sick and injured children, and to encourage development in children with physical, mental, and language difficulties.
All of the money raised here will stay in Southwest Georgia.
"For those patients that qualify, if we did not have this resource to help them get the cutting edge technology and services that they need at that given point and time.If we didn't have children's miracle network that just simply wouldn't be possible," said Lauren Ray of the Phoebe Foundation.
You can also help by taking park in the Jingle Bell Jog this Saturday. There will be a 10k, 5k, toddler trot, and one mile fun walk.
