HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Sertoma Club of Hattiesburg has donated $20,000 to the DuBard School for Language Disorders at the University of Southern Mississippi.

A check was presented Thursday morning.

The money was collected during a recent fund raising event at the club.

Since 2006, Sertoma has given $133,000 to the school, which helps children with communication disorders and reading disabilities.

"In these economic times when it's hard to keep things balanced, gifts like these have made the difference between us being able to offer services or not offer services," said Dr. Maureen Martin, executive director of the school. 

"Some of our members have actually had children go through the DuBard School (and Speech and Hearing), so it's very close to their heart and it's a great organization and a great cause," said David A. Bounds, president of the Hattiesburg Sertoma Club. 

All tolled, the club has donated about $173,000 to the DuBard school.
