ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia Power representative, Jay Smith, presented a check for $2,500 to Easter Seals Southern Georgia for the Megan's House “Dream House” Capital Campaign Tuesday morning at the Georgia Power office on Westover Blvd.
The capital campaign is being conducted to raise money to build a new Megan's House in Albany. The current home serves one or two children at a time. The new house will be able to provide three to four children with the valuable resource of respite care.
Megan's House is a respite home for children ages 0-17 who have developmental disabilities, autism, or are medically fragile. It is a critical service to local families of children with special needs and provides a well-deserved break with the peace of mind that their child is being cared for by qualified professionals.
Megan's House was established in 2005 and now provides respite services in three locations: Albany, Valdosta, and Waycross.
Easter Seals Southern Georgia creates solutions that change the lives of children, adults and families with disabilities or special needs by offering a variety of programs and services that enable individuals to lead lives of equality, dignity and independence.
If you are interested in making a donation, please designate to the "Dream House" campaign at Easter Seals Southern Georgia 1906 Palmyra Rd. Albany, GA 31701.
