ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany city officials are collecting warms blankets for seniors. 

Albany Parks and Recreation held its 3rd annual Stay Warm for the Holidays Blanket Drive at K-Mart on Wednesday afternoon.

Residents bought blankets from the store and filled four bins with them. 

Last year, they collected 1,500 blankets for the elderly. 

"They have helped their electric bills, you know a lot of them get a little cool sometimes. Some say when they travel they put it on them as well," said Recreation and Parks Director Tee Taylor.

The drive will be going on until December 7th, and people can drop them off at any fire station.

They plan to give out blankets on December 9th to several nursing homes.
