ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County Police donated food to help 20 families enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.  Help that one South Albany food program says is desperately needed.

D-C-P officers donated nearly $400,  and bought turkeys and fixings for Thanksgiving meals for 20-families.

They gave the food to Neighbors in Need.

That program has distributed food to the hungry in Albany for almost 30 years.

Leaders say the need is greater now than ever.

As officers brought in the donations, a line of people waited outside for help.

Neighbors in Need Assistant  Director Tina Appollonio said "Out food goes out as soon as it comes in. I don't know if it's going to get any better anytime soon. I don't think so."

Donations to Neighbors in Need are down just when the need is the greatest.

They hope you'll help them. They're located at 2005 Martin Luther King, Junior Drive.
