ALBANY, GA (WALB) - In a small store front on East Broad a meal was shared with the spirit of giving thanks. Turkey, stuffing, and greens were among the Thanksgiving staples served at Hope for the Hopeless.
"I am just thank God that we were able to help the homeless and needy today," said volunteer," Linda Clark.
This is the mission at Hope for the Hopeless as volunteers work to help those in the most need one plate at a time. "We make sure that their needs have been met. We give food and clothing to the less fortunate," said founder Annie Davis.
"I am glad that we are able to feed everyone that comes in," said Clark.
A goal started by Annie Davis who was also homeless on the streets with her four children. "I decided when people helped me I was going to give it back to the community," said Davis.
And for the past seven years, Davis has been doing just that. "So many children in my community were homeless and needed food and clothing that I started doing it out of my house," said Davis.
"There is so many people out there who are hungry and have no where to lay their heads. And we don't realize how truly blessed we are," said Clark.
But she wants those who eat from her tables to get more than just physical nourishment. "Get love. Let them know that God didn't take the time to make a nobody. Make them feel like they are not left alone," said Davis.
And at a time when we take the time to give thanks, Davis can't help but smile. "Well, I thank God for this day. It's a great day. I am looking forward to doing more." She doesn't plan to stop until every need in her South Georgia neighborhood is met.
Right now volunteers at Hope for the Hopeless are collecting items for the Christmas Season. They are in the most need of infant and children's clothing. Anyone interested in helping can call 229-432-1047.
