ALBANY, GA (WALB) –A South Georgia business owner is camping out to raise awareness for her food drive.

Curves owner Mary Kreiser does this every year outside her business on Ledo Road to spread the word about how badly donations are needed.

Last year, she collected 2,000 pounds of food in a month.

She thinks she may already have passed that goal in just one week this time.

Kreiser has been camping out since Monday.

It wasn't long before the bad weather forced her inside.

"I went inside and slept inside curves had about 8 inches of water in my tent and my tent was uprooted but we survived," said Mary Kreiser, Owner of Curves.

You can drop off food up until the end of the month at Curves.

The enrollment fee at the fitness center will be waived for anyone who gives.
