ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A generous donation to one South Georgia food bank will ensure families in our region will receive the meals they need.
On Tuesday, the Enterprise Rent-A-Car foundation presented a check for over $10,000 to Second Harvest of South Georgia.
The donation is a part of the foundation's program "Fill your Tank Campaign."
The program will provide over $60 million over six years to fight hunger around the world.
Chief Marketing officer Eliza McCall said this donation will help people reach their full potential.
"That's enormously important," she said. "What we want to make sure is that people have what they need to not just survive, but to thrive. Because if their stomachs are full, if children have what they need for school supplies, those sorts of things, then they are more likely to be self sufficient."
The donation comes at a busy time for the food bank, as they prepare to feed thousands during this Thanksgiving season.
