ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Boys & Girls Club of Albany will soon kick off its annual end-of-year campaign. 

Every year, staff aim to raise $10,000 during the last month of the year. 

The campaign helps provide funding to continue to operate key services for youth like having vehicles that transport kids to the various units across town. 

Last year, staff came close to meeting that goal. 

Boys & Girls Club of Albany currently serves about 3,000 kids.

"We don't see it as giving, we see it as an investment. You're making an investment in the future, in the future lives of these young people that we serve daily. Our records and our research show, our evaluation reports show that we have a significant impact. We know that 96 percent of our kids expect to graduate from high school," explained President & CEO Marvin Laster. 

The Boys & Girls Club of Albany end-of-year campaign starts on Friday, December 1.
