Camilla - Many of you have lent your time or money to tornado victims. This weekend, the main donation center in Camilla needs you're support. You can help by lending a hand or giving supplies.
Each can of food means more mouths to feed. Volunteer, Fred Murphy, says, "I'm from Cuthbert, GA. Just came over to give assistance from neighboring counties to show support."
Murphy is volunteering for tornado victims at the Adventist Donation Center in Camilla. He says, "It feels good, I volunteered during the flood in Albany so anytime I can be of assistance I'll help."
The donation center has done a 360 this week. On Monday, tables were bare, but once the word got out, people started giving. Coordinator, Carolyn Lipscomb, says, "We've had a terrific response from private individual."
The center has been relying on inmates to sort, load and unload donations, but this weekend they won't be here to pitch in. Lipscomb adds, "We have a mountain of clothes and we don't have enough volunteers to sort it down."
The center doesn't need anymore used clothes, but always need personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies and canned goods. They serve an average of 40 families a day. Lipscomb explains, "The food goes out quickly. Some of these families have five to six, it takes quit a bit to feed that many."
Volunteers urge you to get involved. Murphy says, "The main thing is to help someone else because you never know when you may need help. And if you don't have anything to do, come out and help."
The Donation Center is in a warehouse next to the Wal-Mart on US 19 in Camilla. They need volunteers between eight in the morning and seven at night. For more information you can call 229-336-3035.
If you can't make it to Camilla, you can also drop off donations in Albany at the Food Bank, First Baptist Church or Albany Honda.
