ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With a large number of domestic violence victims in Dougherty County, one organization is hosting a 'Day of Service'  Saturday to collect donations.

The Albany Women's Club will be at the Walmart on Ledo Road, collecting household items like dishes and bed linen for the Liberty House.

This is a state-wide initiative for the Georgia Federation of Women's Clubs. 

Staff at the Liberty House said these items are a consistent need for women who are preparing to leave the shelter. 

"There's a large number of needs that they have. Some of the individuals that enter in our shelter need clothing need school supplies for children, school uniforms. It's just a wide variety of things," said Liberty House Executive Director Diane Rogers. 

"Domestic violence is something that we have to fight every day. And there's lots of people in and out of domestic violence shelters and they need things all the time," said Georgia Federation of Women's Clubs Southwest District President Dianne Barlow. 

Over 80 clubs are part of the Georgia Federation of Women's Clubs.

Representatives will be at stores across the state for the 'Day of Service.' 

The collection drive in Albany will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
