On Saturday, The Columbus Ga. Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club presented a check to Janie Potts and the Crisis Center of Russell County.

The donation was for $1,000 from a car wash the club had.

“We picked them because I am a domestic violence survivor and an advocate,” said Wanda Harris, a member of the club.

The club is dedicated to participating in the community and supporting numerous charitable functions including senior citizen homes, students’ developmental activities, scholarships, supplies for elementary schools, and food and fund drives for charitable organizations like the National Infantry Museum, United Way, March of Dimes, and Toys for Tots.

“I’m overwhelmed,” said Potts. “I had a few tears when they handed the check to me. We’re so grateful for the support of the community.”

The Crisis Center of Russell County is a sexual assault agency and a domestic violence shelter. For more information on the center, visit
