    Albany Advocacy Resource Center helps sp many people.Probley some of your family,or a family you know.I know times are really bad now.But to help this program at least you ll know where your money is going….Have you ever needed there help? Have you ever met any of them. I have,and the ones i have met are awesome,always a smile,even in the worst times. I know of one of the men who help there,and his van broke down the other day.It would really be nice if the City Of Albany could give some to them.And there are more ways to give than money.Time to help someone,give household items to there store,but at this time of year they are trying to make someones day alittle more special.They need our help.Give and you shall get back 2 folds.Maybe not money,but maybe you will need them one day.And they will be there.And helping does make a heart feel good.Merry Christmas.
