Albany - The I-CAN center is an extension of Words of Restoration International. When Hurricane Katrina hit, the center started a clothing drive for victims.

They have collected almost 250 boxes of clothing for people of all ages. Sampson Wright donated his truck and time to deliver the clothes. He says, "He [Dr. Benton] said he had a load to go, and I told him my equipment was available and I'm on my way."

Dr. Oscar Benton, Jr. says, "The community has been extremely responsive to assist us, we've had people from as far as Sylvester, as well as Bainbridge bring clothing." The truck left Albany Monday afternoon, and is expected to arrive in Forest, Mississippi Tuesday morning.
