ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An organization is working to send messages of inspiration to Albany children who were impacted by the January storms.

'Stars of Hope' visited Radium Springs Elementary on Thursday and students were able to paint stars with positive messages.

Many students there live in some of the worst hit areas.

The organization is a disaster relief and community arts project that allows students to use arts and crafts for messages of hope and encouragement.

"This is a way for the children to express themselves. They feel it. They actually feel it a lot more than we do, and just don't know how to express it. So this is a way for them to express their feelings," explained Stars of Hope Program Manager Marcelle Robustelli.

The organization will take the stars and put them out on street corners and areas affected the most.

And some of the other stars will go to the next place 'Stars of Hope' will visit.
