Cheerleaders help collect can goods

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County Police teamed up with Westover High school cheerleaders to make sure families have a Thanksgiving meal.

They collected canned food for the Neighbors in Need Program at the St. Clare's Community Center.

Dougherty County Police have been doing this for ten years, but this was the first year they contacted Westover cheerleaders to help.

"We just thought that since the community gives so much to us, they come and support our team, that we would give back to the less fortunate at during this holiday season," says

Food bank managers tell us This Thanksgiving the need is greater than ever.
