ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Drivers in Albany had their vehicles washed for less Saturday by contributing to a good cause.

Goo Goo's car wash gave drivers a two dollar discount if a they donated at least ten canned goods, or gave two dollars or more toward the Food bank of Southwest Georgia. The general manager says this was just a way to give back.

"It's a way to give back to the community. They have supported us ever since we have been open. We've always had a good support base. And donations right now are at a high demand. So I feel like we could help out the food bank as much as we can right now," said Jeffery Mitchell.

Mitchell hopes to make this canned food drive an annual event.
