Albany - Hurricane Ivan not only demolished structures along the Florida Panhandle and Alabama, but it also tore down hope.
A south Georgia Church wants to build spirits by driving donations south. They need your help.
A line of desperation as Hurricane victims wait for hours to get food and water. Carlton Hollis says, "I know the desperations that come with natural disasters."
Hollis is eager to help. He smiles, "I intend to do some driving, if we have to get a U-Haul or if it's a bigger effort and we need an 18 wheeler, I'll have to rent an 18 wheeler and we'll take it down there." To get donations down to Florida and Alabama.
Hollis and the Sons of Allen, a men's organization in Albany, will start with an empty box.
Panama City resident, Ed Peters, says, "Yes, we did, and it was a good experience."
Last week, we watched Peters board up his Panama City home for Ivan, but 10 years ago he was on the other side of disaster relief. He came to Albany to help flood victims. Peters explains, "We refinished the inside of a house, sheet rock and all, but we were from the First United Methodist Church in Panama City."
Hollis adds, "One good turn deserves another, I guess."
Hollis needs you to turn up and bring bottled water, ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, toilet paper, towelettes and personal hygiene items.
One drop off box will be at Carter's Grill and Restaurant in Albany on West Highland Avenue. Hollis adds, "Mrs. Carter is actually from Pensacola, Florida."
The other drop off site is at Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Albany, across from the Civic Center.
The deadline is Thursday (September 23rd) which will hopefully thin out the desperate line for food and water by this weekend.
Hollis will start off giving out donations in Pensacola, Florida and if he has left overs he will go to Alabama.
