Clay shooting fundraiser benefits non-profits

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Folks come together in Albany for a clay shoot that helps out two south Georgia non profit organizations.

As each clay piece bursts and crumbles to the down, two major Bainbridge groups are reaping the benefits, one of them is Friendship House of Jesus.

It's an organization caters to underprivileged youth by offering free afterschool services and activities as well as help generate stronger bonds in Christian faith. 

Saturday morning dozens  gathered at Flint River Skeet and Trap Club in Albany for the second Sporting Clays Classic fundraiser. Board member, Rollins

Miller says the outpour of support is touching and loves seeing the community fired up. 

"It's a program that can help them their whole life, not just in education but also from a spiritual standpoint." 

"It feels good, I really like it. It's a good feeling to know that there are so many supporters and helpers out here."

Still Water Shelter, a safe space for displaced women and children, is the other group the fundraiser is assisting. 

Shooters feel it's a perfect way to give back.

"I really like shooting skeet and have a good time. " 

"Today's weather, the weather has been great. So, everybody has gotten to complete the course and its really been fun." 

Over 70 people signed up, those involved say they hope this will turn into an annual event.
