Albany-- There's little to give the tornado victims.

The Food Bank in Southwest Georgia had just a few bags of groceries to send to Mitchell and Worth Counties this morning. So far, a few grocery bags are all that people have dropped off at the Food Bank for the victims.

Alicia Evans says she has called organizations as far away as California to try and enlist help for the needy families, "It's a struggle, imagine losing everything you have and not having any help. Many don't have insurance. For a lot of the people this is the second time they've been affected. This is a bad time. There is a need for many things."

The Food Bank on Camp Lane is the only drop off point for the tornado victims in Albany. They are accepting everything from washing machines to cleaning supplies. What's needed most right now is insect repellent, but any donations are welcome.
