Albany organizations partner to "Feed the Community"

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two Albany organizations team up to feed hundreds of people in need.

King Solomon Lodge #14 and Artesian Chapter 217 held their "Feed the Community" event at their headquarters on South Madison Street. They made 600 plates filled with ham, turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce and gave away clothing. They say it's important to give back to the community.

"Just the community here, that's what we are," said Jerry Franklin, Senior Warden for King Solomon Lodge #14. "We are a community based organization and we try our best to make sure everybody is comfortable."

The two organizations have hosted this event for 10 years.
