So. Georgians step up for tornado survivors

Madison Karr will hand deliver the goods Madison Karr will hand deliver the goods

With so many tornado survivors still struggling to recover,  south Georgians are stepping up to help.

Around Albany, businesses and organizations are offering a helping hand for Alabama tornado victims.

Albany's Adventure Dive Shop is hosting a Donation Collection Center.  Madison Karr, an Alabama native, will hand deliver the goods that are dropped off at the store  at 1104 Westover Boulevard.

The Albany Area Red Cross has sent eight Volunteers to Tuscaloosa using their Emergency Relief Vehicles or "ERVS".

The Red Cross encourages the community to attend trainings to become qualified to help in different affected areas

The Local YMCA gets into the act as well. Over 40 "Y" kids in Alabama have lost everything and two Childcare centers have been displaced to the Tuscaloosa YMCA.

The request is for kids clothing for ages 5-10, toys, school supplies, and money, in the form of gift cards. The Drop Off Box is located at the Main and Central Location.

You can contact the dive shop at 229-888-3483.
