Albany - Ninety-two-thousand pounds of turkey and ham are heading to those in need.

The Food Bank of Southwest Georgia's annual Turk Fest started this morning in Albany. Three-hundred non-profit organizations from 20 south Georgia counties will be picking up their share of turkeys and ham in the next few days.

Bright Future Youth Center came all the way from Cordele to make families in their area happy over the holidays. Executive Director, Ruby Jackson, says, "At Thanksgiving time we do food baskets and give them out from Bright Future Youth Center and take the baskets out to the families that need the food. It's a way for us to give back to the community."

Merck and Company donated $6,000 to help the Food Bank operate Turk Fest.

This year they have $60,000 worth of turkeys and ham.
