ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Families across South Georgia will be able to enjoy a warm meal this Thanksgiving thanks to the generosity of our viewers. A WALB-TV van load of food was delivered to the Salvation Army in Albany Monday.

It was collected last week during WALB's Feed the Hungry Campaign.  Captain Doug McClure says the Salvation Army is feeding double, if not triple the amount of people from this time last year.

He said, "We're very sensitive to the fact that people need a Thanksgiving meal and want to be able to provide that and that is going to help us toward that goal and, of course, help us the rest of the year as we provide meals everyday."

The Salvation Army is preparing close to 900 meals to be served on Thanksgiving Day. The food delivered will help with that effort and other food requests the mission receives from people in need.
