ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Students worked the last two months to help the homeless and folks in need in Albany.

Thursday at Albany Middle School, Future Business Leaders sponsor Cora Thomas and 7th Grader Madison Jackson presented boxes of food and clothing to the Albany Rescue Mission.
Brother Larry Hample and Keith Taylor happily accepted the gifts from the students.

"We have been collecting these items for the  Albany Rescue Mission since February 17th", said 7th grader Madison Jackson. "We learned from this activity to give back to our community."
The food and clothing will be used to help the men and women served by the Albany Rescue Mission on North Monroe Street.

The Future Business Leaders are already planning another project next year.
