Sertoma Club raises $20K for Albany nonprofits

Sertoma Club raises $20,000 for Albany non profits

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Sertoma Club of Albany has been helping nonprofits in the city since 1983.

On Thursday, the Sertoma Club members handed two checks out to their recipients.

The Albany Museum of Art and the Flint River Habitat for Humanity both received $10,000.

The money was raised from the truck raffle the club held back in April.

The Albany Museum of Art was affected by the 2017 storms and said this will help them get back on track.

"We are so excited about this," said Albany Museum of Art Executive Director Paula Williams. "Back in January of 2017, we were hit by the storm and it completely destroyed our children's gallery. So, this check will allow us to start slowly rebuilding that."

The Sertoma Club looks to continue this work for the community for as long as it can.
