ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A tough job market and a tougher economy is putting more people in need these days. Service organizations are struggling to meet that need.

One WALB News 10 viewer saw the need at the Albany Rescue Mission and got fellow church members to pitch in.

On Thursday Ellen Harris and her son David Harris delivered an SUV full of food to the Albany Rescue Mission.

The program director says community support like this means a lot.

"what she's done today really helped us a lot, in terms of having money for other things such as utility bills," said Daniel Dames, Alb. Rescue Mission Program Dir.

"It makes your heart feel good, because he never leaves us, he never forsakes us, get out and do something, not just the holidays,"said Ellen Harris, Donor.

Harris is a Member of 1st Baptist Church in Leesburg.
