Church on a chicken mission

September 25, 2005

Albany-- A south Georgia church uses some good southern cooking to help the thousands affected by two of this year's biggest hurricanes.

First United Methodist in Albany held what they call "chicken for missions" Sunday afternoon. All money raised from boxes of southern fried chicken will go towards two causes, Hurricane Katrina efforts in Mississippi and assistance to those affected by flooding in Worth County from Hurricane Dennis. Church members hope to raise atleast $2,500 to help the victims.

"To underwrite our work teams and supplies and expenses of traveling back and forth to Mississippi and we have adopted a house in Worth County and to underwrite that house as well," says Mission Chairman Becky Boyd.

Over 30 members from First United will returned from Mississippi Sunday evening. More members will soon leave again to continue helping victims in the devastated areas.
