Lee County -- The Parks at Chehaw became a little bit sweeter Saturday with the help of some volunteers.

The Mars Corporation donated and built a concession stand for the park. The stand is located by the train station of the animal park.

The project was an opportunity for Mars to give back to the community for the years of business they were given.

"First of all, its to bring joy to the people of South Georgia," said Mars Inc. Site Director, Ullic Young. "And then secondly is to show that there is a partnership between the local community and the corporation that we have here is Southwest Georgia."

The ten builders were made up of people from Mars corporation and also park employees. It took the group about five hours to complete. The stand will be stocked with Mars candy.
