Albany -- A South Georgia church group, that brought disaster aid to hurricane victims, needs your help.

The Sons of Allen men's group collected and delivered more than 2,000 pounds of food and supplies to Hurricane Ivan victims.

Now, the group needs a place to store more supplies for Hurricane Jeanne victims.

"We are trying to coordinate a continued effort to assist Hurricane Jeanne victims this time, primarily in Central Florida," says Carlton Hollis of the Sons of Allen.

To donate space or to find out how your church or business can become a collection site please call Bethel A-M-E Church in Albany at 229-435-8589.

The group says a partnership with Carter's Grill in Albany has been a big part of their success in providing aid to victims.
