The Albany Procter and Gamble paper manufacturing plant donates child care equipment to South Georgia non-profits.

After eleven years, P&G closed their on-site Child Development Center at their plant last summer, because of a lack of demand from  employees.

Today, United Way of Southwest Georgia picked up the equipment that will be given to non-profit groups that care for children.

"The tables, the chairs, the books, the coloring, the paint.  Everything in the facility that is focused on children," said Damali Orozco, P&G Site HR Manager.

"It just continues to further the partnership and the investment that Procter and Gamble has," said LaKisha Bryant Bruce of the United Way.

Most of the child care equipment has already been designated for donation to certain organizations.
