ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State University students were out in front of the Sam's Club on Westover Boulevard Saturday collecting food for the ‘Let's Can the Hunger' campaign. The campaign is sponsored by the Campbell's Soup Company.

Students made a pledge to collect $5,000 pounds of food and canned goods. ASU Enactus students say they've had a lot of support from the community.

"We've been talking back and forth with customers and when we mention Albany State University or ‘Let's Can the Hunger', they've been willing to go in the store and buy cases of canned good or give us a monetary donation," said Khadijah Nuriddin.

The students raised $225 and collected over 200 food items. The items will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of South Georgia.
