'Hummer' drive donates thousands of items to food pantry

TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) - Thousands of food items were donated to the Terrell County food pantry Tuesday after weeks of collecting donations.

"We are so happy to receive this donation. We have plenty of people in the community that are in need of canned goods," said Manager Teresa Pearman.

The food pantry is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

They always accept donations.
