Salvation Army holds relief drive

September 2, 2005

Valdosta, GA - South Georgians are helping bring relief to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The Salvation Army in Valdosta is collecting food and supplies to send to the Gulf Coast. They're accepting donations until 7:00 Friday night and between 9:00 and 7:00 Saturday at Lowe's on St. Augustine Road.

Bottled water, canned goods, blankets and personal hygiene items are needed, but giving money is the best way you can help.

"As everyone knows, with the price of gas its going to cost us a lot of money to get these goods to the area where its needed," said Carmen Claypool.

The Salvation Army hopes to fill two semis with food and supplies for victims along the Gulf Coast.
