Valdosta - A South Georgia Food Bank is asking neighbors to help neighbors in a campaign to fight hunger in the region.

Saturday is Make a difference day.

The Second Harvest Food Bank in Valdosta is hosting the day-long event.

They hope to have 700 volunteers help the food bank prepare for the busy holiday season.

It's also a chance for the charity to thank those who make a difference in the community every day.  "There will be food sorting, warehouse clean-up, there will be landscaping. We'll also have a kids carnival and have local meet and greet with police department, fire department and the different local heroes in our area," says Tamela Myers, Director of Volunteer Services at the food bank.

The Food Bank hope volunteers will pre-register for the event by Thursday, but anyone who wants to help can show up Saturday morning at 9:00.
