Valdosta - South Georgians are gearing up for the nation's largest day of volunteering. "It just makes you feel good, and you're not only helping others, you're helping yourself too," said Susan Reiter, Volunteer.
It's part of National Make a Difference Day. And organizers need your help to make it a success. "Our goal is to get 1000 volunteers to come out and help," said Amanda Redman, Volunteer Services Coordinator.
Volunteers are needed to sort and process food items at America's Second Harvest Food Bank. "We've got two semi trucks full of donated goods coming in, so it's going to require a lot of people," said Redman.
Across town, the city of Valdosta is organizing a clean up at Greer Park. "We'll be picking up trash, doing some landscaping, and just making it a nicer place for the neighborhood," said Mara Register, Community Development Coordinator.
City firefighters will also go door to door in the neighborhood around the park clean up to inspect and install smoke detectors. "They will actually install them for you and give them out for free," said Register.
If you can't take part in the project, organizers ask that you drop off a bag on non-perishable food to any local grocery store. The event kicks off at 9:00 Saturday morning at the Food Lion shopping center on Norman Drive.
