Several volunteers helped out The Second Harvest Food Saturday morning.

Members of First Baptist Church of Putney, Victorious Life Church in Albany and The Albany, Georgia Chapter of The Links, Incorporated spent the morning packing boxes of food for local families at Second Harvest Food Bank. The groups filled boxes in the warehouse in preparation for distribution.  

"Today were just helping out, putting boxes out for the food bank. Came out to be helping hands for the community," said Quentarious Jones, Victorious Life Church.

"We have a couple different ministry groups at my church and they wanted to do more local mission projects because God's been so go to us and we wanted to show the goodness of God to others," Tabb Howell, First Baptist Church of Putney.

Between the three groups, over a thousand boxes were packed.

The Second Harvest Food Bank welcomes volunteers and opportunities to assist. You can schedule through their office.
