ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Food and first aid collect for Haiti are on their way to the earthquake ravaged country.

Two planes left the Albany Airport before dawn.

The flights are two of several trips over the coming months the organization Mission: Change will make.

Last week they embarked on a task to collect and take the needed goods to those displaced and injured.

The public response has been immense.

"It's not just businesses, individual people and reaching out to put their hands and feet to work, and now their resources are going to be delivered," said Sheila Urick, Interim Dir. Mission Change.

Mission: Change still needs more donations for future flights.

Donations can be dropped off at the following locations.

**Albany Harley Davidson
**Tifton Harley Davidson
**Flint Community Bank
**SB & T - Albany and Lee Co
**Goodie Two Shoes
**Albany Uniforms
**Byne Memorial Church
