ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Thursday was Red Nose Day, aimed at tackling poverty in communities everywhere.

Albany Police and Walgreens teamed up for the special day.

They showed off their dance moves and red attire, but their goal is to raise at least $400 for children and young people living in poverty.

Organizers said that the event is a great way to be positive about one big issue.

"Well when they see people with the red noses on, it's just a funny thing. So it brings smiles to peoples' face," said  Walgreens District Manager Brian Patterson.

"All in all it's just a one man deal and everybody is getting together, celebrating red nose day. And what's the best way to do it with a red nose, acting silly, and just being our self," explained Sgt. Phyllis Walters with the APD Crime Prevention Unit.

Albany Police said that they would be out at the Walgreens on North Slappey all day to raise money for for Red Nose Day.
