ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany charity needs your help to continue to help families in need.

Neighbors In Need helps up to five hundred families per month with food and bills.

In this tough economy, they're seeing more people who need the food on their pantry shelves.

The shelves are much barer than they used to be.

"If we have any income available we try to supply payments towards rent, our pantry is very low most of the perishable and non perishable items have been greatly decreased, we're in great need," said Hosea Bennett, Neighbors In Need Director. 

Neighbors In Need receives no government help.

Most of the money for the food bank, thrift store, and soup kitchen comes from St. Teresa's Catholic Church.

If you would like to donate, call (229) 883-2566.
