ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Darton State College Lady Cavaliers soccer team and other volunteers from the community joined with Mission Change Saturday to prepare, package and deliver lunches to senior citizens in the area. Recipients also got flowers and notes with their lunches. Volunteers say they just want to make a difference with this project.

"I'm actually never done anything like this before. So I'm pretty excited to see what it's like. I never had a chance to interact with many people in Albany yet, so I'm excited about that," said Abigail Ingram, soccer player.

"It's alot of places here in Albany that don't really do things for the community and Mission Change is always there, always supportive. They always have something for us to do," said Kristal Isral.

Volunteers took the lunches to three different locations in Albany.
