Seminole County - There's not enough food for flood victims in Donalsonville.

The Salvation Army donation center in Donalsonville doesn't have any food to give out. The Early County Georgia Power donated bags of paper products today, but they need food to go on the plates, especially if weather gets bad again.

The center does have plenty of clothes and other important items like water containers. GEMA Spokesperson, Jennifer Collins, says, "We have milk containers behind us five thousand of those. Clean, sterile containers to put water in. Slowly but surely, but we do need the help in any that can be provided."

Flood victims need non-perishable food items, mattresses, linens, bedding, hygiene products, furniture and baby supplies. If you want to call and arrange a donation call the Salvation Army Donation Center at 229-220-0583.

While GEMA is lacking food, the Lions Club is getting food and clothing for flood victims. Lions Club International Foundation issued the Donalsonville Chapter $10,000 in emergency relief. Flood victims get vouchers to buy food and money at participating stores.

The Donalsonville Lions Club is also expecting a truck shipments of food. Robert Monroe with the Lions Club says, "It looks like before it's over we'll have twenty truck loads of food in the next few or four weeks. This will be used for Red Cross and so forth and so on."

Flood victims can pick up donations Friday between ten and five at the Lions Hall on Wiley Avenue.
