LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Young leaders of the next generation are giving back to help storm victims here in south Georgia. 

A combination of four schools joined forces to make an impact after January's devastating storms. 

Monday, the Chick-Fil-A Foundation donated $6,000 dollars to the Albany area.

The money will go toward planning a basketball benefit game, with tickets sales that will help storm victims. 

Students from Monroe, Dougherty, Albany, and Lee County High Schools who are members of the Albany Area Chick-Fil-A Leader Academy presented the check. 

"We're kind of divided with schools because the teams are always against each other with football and everything. And this way, we're all coming together and when we grow up, you're not going to care which high school you went to," said Lee County High School student Meaghan Fallin. "You're all going to be one, big community. I think working together now will help us in the future working together."

The benefit game is planned for April 29th from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. 

Tickets are not on sale yet.
