ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some people living with disabilities in South Georgia will soon see their dreams come true thanks to a national company's donation.

Tuesday, Procter and Gamble donated $1,500 to Easterseals Southern Georgia.

That money will go directly to the program's Dream Project.

At Easterseals, there's a dream board that lists all the individuals' dreams.

Some of those are as small as visiting Tifton, and as big as visiting the beach or Disney World.

"Being a good corporate citizen means you help out the community, you help the people in the community and what better way than to support Easterseals," said Vince Falcione, with P&G External Affairs.

"With that money, we're going to be able to do something big for some of our individuals that we serve," said Julie Hall, Easterseals' Day Services Director.

Easterseals is planning a beach trip for several of the people, and leaders say this money will definitely help out with making that happen.
