The Albany Advocacy Resource Center gained over two dozen presents Wednesday morning which will all go towards their third annual Adopt an Angel program.

The local Pfizer Plant loaded up two cars worth of presents on Wednesday, all for families and individuals in need of Christmas presents this year.

According to Albany ARC Deputy Director Deanna Julian, the Adopt an Angel program helps out those who are on a limited income or may not have a family to celebrate with this holiday season.

Julian says it's all about giving back by providing everyone with a wonderful Christmas.

"We believe that you know, this time of year and for our holiday season, everybody should strive to give back. Everyone should give back to the community and that's one thing at Albany ARC we do, we give back to people in need and give back to people that might not be able to do as much for themselves," said Julian.

According to Albany ARC, there have been over 200 angels to adopt this year. Some of those angels are still in need of adopting before Christmas.

You can donate or adopt an angel by going to the Albany ARC office at 3005 Old Dawson Road or 2200 Stuart Avenue.
