DAWSON, GA (WALB) - The City of Dawson's generosity will make a big difference for Albany and Dougherty County storm victims.
Tuesday, Dawson City Manager Barney Parnacott and Mayor Robert Albritten helped make a donation with dozens of boxes filled with clothes, food and cleaning supplies.
The city posted flyers around town after the January storms, asking citizens to bring all kinds of donations.
The city donated all of the supplies it collected to the Salvation Army Tuesday morning.
"The people in Dawson turned out very strongly. We just wanted to project a positive image of Dawson and the community," said Parnacott.
"The people in Dawson and Terrell County are warmhearted, they're giving and God-fearing individuals," said Mayor Albritten.
The citizens also donated nearly $6,000 to the American Red Cross of South Georgia as well.
