Albany- The Albany Chick-fil-a has kicked off their two-week "To Our Troops With Love" donation drive.

A collection box has been set up in front of the Dawson Road restaurant. They are asking for comfort items to send to the military in Iraq.

"It doesn't have to be anything big. We're looking for things like baby wipes, chap stick, disposable cameras, batteries and we also take cash donations because at the end whatever we are short in we'll use the cash to make up for," says Unit Marketing Director Anna Wari.

The collection box will be set up until August 28th. Donations can also be dropped off at Merry Acres Middle School and Winn Dixie Supermarkets in Albany, Americus and Fitzgerald.
