Albany -- A local humanitarian service group organizes a relief effort in Americus, and you can help them with their efforts.

Lions Club International gave the Albany chapter a $10,000 grant to start a command post to help storm victims in Americus. You can bring supplies to a collection site at Palmyra United Methodist Church in Albany.

Once they fill a trailer they'll take it up to Americus and start a command post to help others.

"We are trying to help others that have been affected by the tornadoes, and displaced people," said Alert Team district coordinator Terry Foreman.

Local club members encourage you to bring supplies such as bottled water, non-perishable food, and clothing to their donation site.

The grant money will go toward vouchers for storm victims.
