What to do with extra canned goods

November 5, 2003

Lee County - If you have extra canned goods in your pantry, grab them and head to the Walmart parking lot in Lee County.

The annual K-Country Can-Do event is underway. You can drop off cans or money to feed the hungry in south Georgia. All donations will be taken to the Food Bank of Southwest Georgia.

Sponsors, like Merck and Company, are challenging other businesses. Food Bank Director says, "Merck has been kind enough to give us a $6,000 check which will sponsor the Turk Fest which will actually take place next week. The Food Bank will distribute about a hundred thousand pounds, four tractor trailer loads, of turkeys and hams to our 300 non-profit agencies."

Can-Do will be set up at Walmart from seven in the morning to seven at night until Friday.
