Campin' out for hunger

By Cade Fowler - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany business owner says she won't let overnight rain spoil her camp out to raise awareness of hunger.

Marie Kreiser owns Curves on Ledo Road.

This is the third night she's spent in a tent near her business.

She says more than 100 people have shown up and donated food since she started her Camp out For a Cause Monday.

"Everything is going great. We've had lots of community support. We've had a lot of people drive by just wanting to know what's happening, what we're doing, and why we're doing it. We've had monetary donations as well as they can goods. We've already filled up three barrels," says Kreiser.

All of the food collected will go to the local Food Bank.

Kreiser hopes to get a truck load.

Anyone who brings a grocery bag full of food can get free Curves registration. That's a $200.00 value.
