ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Rotary Club continues to bring Christmas cheer to local seniors.

On Tuesday, for a fifth straight year, the club delivered presents to seniors at the SOWEGA Council on Aging.

Albany Rotary Club raised the money from their members throughout the year and then gave it to the Council on Aging who bought the presents for the very happy recipients.

"It's all about Jesus, and not about us. So showing love, that's what I think it's all about,"said Roy Hicks Jr.

Hicks was one of this year's recipients, and this year the club raised over $1,500.
