TYTY, GA (WALB) - With hundreds of thousands of Gustav evacuees staying in shelters, many organizations are depending on the public's help to be able to accommodate them all.

Esco's convenient store in Tift County is now collecting donations to help feed the evacuees staying in the First Baptist Church of TyTy. Of their 47 evacuees many are small children.They are asking people to drop of bottled water, juices, infant formula and diapers.

"From what I understand these people are a long way from home. They don't know anybody, and they don't have anything except for what they brought with them. So anything we can help them with, as far as medically or food, I am sure they are going to be more than a appreciative," said store owner, Dean Esco.

Esco's convenient store is at the intersection of Church Street and Highway 82 in TyTy. You can drop off your donations any day of the week from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM.
