ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The City of Albany is partnering with a local trucking company to help South Carolina flood victims.
A 53-foot trailer from Interstate National Lease sits behind the Albany Civic Center ready to be filled with cleaning supplies, water, diapers, formula, and other non-perishable baby items.
The Albany Rescue Mission, several churches, and civic organizations are helping with the effort to send items to more than 50 ministries in Sumter, South Carolina.
"Albany not necessarily more so, but can show compassion to the victims up there having experienced what Albany experienced in '94 and '98," said Assistant Fire Chief Eugene Anderson. "So, we know about the need, we know about the challenges that's why it was important."
You can drop off items at the Civic Center from 8 to 6 through October 18th.
The trailer will move to the old Coke bottling plant on Pine Avenue October 19th through 22nd.
Volunteers are also needed, contact Chief Anderson at 229-733-7314.
