Several Albany businesses are teaming up for their first ever food drive.
Employees at Mark's Greenhouse organized the effort.
They encourage customers to drop off non-perishable food or cash at their store or at Bennett's Feed & Seed in Sylvester and Albany, the Bread House, and Hughes Hardware.
"We just see it as a good way to also promote local businesses and stuff, and get them involved and just bring the community together for a good cause," said employee Andrew Tharp.
All donations will go to the Village Community Garden in Sylvester.
Donators have until Christmas Eve to drop off canned goods.
