Albany- If you're looking for a New Year's Resolution, how about volunteering? The Foodbank of Southwest Georgia provides food for those in need in 20 surrounding counties. They need groups and individuals to come out and help in a variety of ways.

"They can get involved with sorting cans, we have our reclamation center, they can also prepare brown bags for our elderly program. They can also sweep the floor and we also have manor trucks, they can help us prepare our manor trucks which distributes 5-thousand pounds of food to needy families as well," says Dwayne Myles, the Executive Director of the Foodbank of Southwest Georgia.
