T'ville feeds Katrina victims

September 01, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia--  People in Thomasville are holding free dinners at the Holiday Inn Express for anyone victimized by Hurricane Katrina.

Victims don't have to be staying at the hotel. The only catch is that they have to show an ID proving they're from one of the affected states.

Victim, Sheila Currie, says a token as small as dinner means so much during this time of need.  "I feel very grateful that the people in this area have opened up their hearts and their homes to us, and are wanting to help us in any way they can.  So, I just feel very blessed to know that God is working through others to help us," she says.

Currie is from Gulfport, Mississippi. She says she lives five blocks from the beach, but doesn't expect to be allowed home for up to two weeks.
