Pearson -- The fire in Ware County has been raging for two weeks now, and is huge problem, but it is not the only one that demands attention. A smaller fire in Atkinson County is less than one-tenth its size, but it could get much bigger before it is contained.

Volunteer firefighters are trying to get a handle on the blaze which was estimated to be almost 5,000 acres in size Sunday.

As firefighters battle those fires in Atkinson County, they need your help.  They're asking for your donations.

   They're asking for any food or meals such as pizza, burgers, hot dogs.

      They also ask for:

  • deli meats
  • cheeses
  • bread
  • individual chip bags
  • individual snack cakes

      They need water and Gatorade to help prevent dehydration.

      They also ask for eating utensils and the following products:

  • hand sanitizer
  • chap stick
  • eye drops
  • trash bags
  • toilet paper
  • baby wipes
  • head-ache medicine

All donations can be dropped off at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints located on Pearson Street in Pearson, GA.   For more information on how you can help, call 912-422-3506.
