ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Those who are less fortunate, were treated to a meal and a message Thursday by One Heart in Albany. Hundreds of people showed up at the corner of Roosevelt and Washington Avenues this morning, commonly referred to as the Dray Line, for a warm meal served by volunteers of churches from all over Albany.

This is the second year the homeless and less fortunate have been served the lunch with a message. About 400 others were served, who couldn't make it to the event.

"We're looking here, by the time we finish today, to hopefully feed about 1,000 people, that's what we have food for,"said organizer Brian Spell.

"Oh, I can't even begin to express how I feel. It's a great feeling," said Ray Segrest. "I've been grinning for about two months now, knowing this was going to come together. It's been really great."

The group is always looking for other area churches and volunteers to participate in the outreach ministries. If you want more information, call the Family Christian Bookstore.
