ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Food drives like the one going on in Albany right now are crucial to keep up with the growing need for help.

This is the sixth year that Cumulus Broadcasting and K-Country 104 radio station is hosting its Can Do food drive. It started today, in the Harvey's Parking Lot on North Slappey.

They are asking people to donate cans or non perishable food for the Second Harvest Food Bank.

K-Country Program Director John Kelly said  "Absolutely, as economic times are hard everywhere. Albany is certainly not an exception to the rule. And we would like to do what we can to help out here."

The radio station's goal this year is to collect 8500 pounds of food.

You can make donations at the Can Do food drive from 7 in the morning until 7 at night through Friday.  They are located in the Harvey's Parking lot at North Slappey and Palmyra Road.
