ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More than 200 volunteers with Sherwood Baptist Church are making sure families in need have a meal for Easter.

They packed hundreds of boxes filled with ham, cornbread, vegetables and cake mix. Volunteers delivered boxes to 500 families today.

"We love Southwest Georgia. As a church it's our responsibility as a church to be able to reach the community with the love of Jesus Christ and that's why we do it."

Sherwood Baptist Church holds a food distribution four times a year. They plan to hold their next one this summer.
