ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A huge truck load of peanut butter is headed to Oklahoma tornado victims.

Friday afternoon, 31,680 jars of it were loaded onto a truck at Lineage Logistics in Albany.

The 22 pallets of peanut butter were donated by Peanut Proud and Georgia Peanut Commission.

"What we wanted to do is help people in peanut farming states and Oklahoma is one of the peanut producing states in this country and we want to help our neighbors, be able to help people in the peanut industry and that is what we are trying to do," said Peanut Proud  President Gregg Grimsley 

Next week, they will send another peanut butter shipment as part of Project Oklahoma Relief.
