Albany collects supplies for flood victims

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The city of Albany is collecting items to send to flood victims in South Carolina and they're asking the community to help.

Albany partnered with Interstate National Lease, a division of Taylor Trucking, to deliver the items to help aid South Carolina in flood relief efforts.

Starting October 19th items can be dropped off at the old Coca-Cola Bottling Company building in downtown Albany.

South Carolina Emergency Management provided a list of needed items: water, bleach, cleaning wipes, diapers, and non-perishable baby items.

Those will be the only items collected.

All donations must be new and unopened.

Donations can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. until October 22.
