ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

More than 25,000 liters of water will go toward flood-ravaged parts of South Carolina, thanks to donations through Second Harvest of South Georgia.

The two truckloads of water will go to Harvest Hope Food bank, a fellow member of the Feeding America network.

According to the agency, Second Harvest of South Georgia is positioned strategically to be able to lend a hand for both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, as well as places inland.

It keeps disaster supplies on hand at all times including MRE kits (meals ready to eat), blankets, bleach, and water.

Second Harvest of South Georgia, the state's largest rural food bank, serves a 30 county area and has branches in Thomasville, Albany, Douglas, and Valdosta.
