ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany woman is hoping to knock hunger out of the park.
Grace McWilliams works with other volunteers in Albany on green issues, like recycling and conservation. While working on those issues, she learned how much of a problem human hunger continues to be.
Around the world, thousands of people still die everyday of starvation. McWilliams wants to do something to combat that. She's organized a home runs for hunger derby.
Entrants will pay ten dollars each plus solicit sponsors for home runs. That money will be used to buy meal packs to feed the hungry in other countries.
McWilliams said, "Albany, for the most part, we're very blessed here and I felt like we needed to come together to help the people who are less fortunate than ourselves because the situation is only getting worse and we actually can make a difference."
The derby is open to players sixteen and up and will take place September 19th at Ken Gardens sport complex. If you want to play, now is the time to sign up. You can pick up registration packets at Albany Computer on Ledo Road and Computer Nerd next to the Winn-Dixie in Lee County.
