The Woman's Club of Albany and individual WCA members contributed a total of $745 to a fund established to help victims of the July 17 fire in the 400-block of Madison Avenue.
Member donations were collected at two recent 2sday on the Porch gatherings. Many thanks to all who contributed.
The money was presented to the Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless which will turn over all donations to the City of Albany for distribution to those left homeless by the blaze. Four buildings on the south side of Madison Avenue, below Lark, were destroyed.
"The WCA is pleased to assist its neighbors in need and to support a variety of agencies working in our community in this way," WCA President Mary Thackeray said.
