Herkimer, NY (WIBX) - For the Herkimer ARC, Christmas came a couple of weeks early this year.

Four associates from the Wal-Mart Distribution Center in Marcy, each donated 25 hours of their time to help construct a Records Center for the organization.

The 2,000 square foot space will help centralize and secure the HARC's records.

In addition, as part of Wal-Mart's "Volunteerism Always Pays" program, the retail chain donated $1,000 to the group.

The money is going towards the HARC's 2011 Annual Appeal, which is raising funds to buy cameras for the agency's transporation fleet.
