ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Great news for Easter Seals Southern Georgia this week!

The organization has finally raised the funding needed for its Megan's House project which will serve children with special needs in South Georgia!

The project was launched in February 2014 and received notice of a challenge grant!

At the end of July of that year, an Atlanta Foundation confirmed its commitment to provide $100,000 for the project, $50,000 then & $50,000 once the remaining funds had been raised for the completion of the project.

This week, they received a check that put Easter Seals over the mark for the challenge grant and as a result, Megan's House will open its doors– debt free!

"We are just so excited and grateful for the many many donors in this community, from here in Albany, and Lee County, and all the surrounding counties that have made this dream become a reality," said Beth English.

Beth English said they will still need help with funding for playground equipment, furniture, and fencing.
