THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville's Salvation Army is asking for the community's help this year to fill its empty pantry.
They've already accepted almost 400 applications for families who need help during this holiday season.
But their empty pantry shelves make them worried they won't be able to support those in need.
Volunteers have used their own money to stock up the pantry, and said they are desperate for donations.
Case worker Nikki Smith said, “Just the community coming out and supporting us so that we can help support each other. I see it as not just a hand out, but a hand up for these families.”
The Salvation Army said they're always looking for more volunteers, especially around this time of year.
