ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany outreach organization is helping families maintain a healthy lifestyle.

T.E.A.M Community Outreach gave out free bags of groceries, some winter clothes, health care screenings and seminars to dozens of families at Riverfront Park on Saturday. They’d been doing the event for a decade, and said it’s important to help families in need.

"We have so many single parents rearing children that need assistance,” said Ava O’Neal, T.E.A.M Community Outreach Coordinator. “So many grandparents rearing children that need assistance. Some adults in our area that need assistance, so we wanted to have a one stop shop where they can come and get the information that they need."    

They partnered with Albany Tech, Albany State and Phoebe for the event.
