ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With any possible threat of severe weather...volunteers are ready when called in Dougherty County. 

But they are needing your help.

Tom Gieryic has been leading the volunteer efforts since the first set of storms in January. 

Now they are running out of money and supplies. 

With this week full of severe weather possibilities, they are worried they may not have the resources to help as much as needed. 

Volunteers are concerned that people in Southwest Georgia are not prepared for more devastating weather. 

"We're estimating 6 months on storm two being cleaned up. In between that, we're still trying to clean up storm one. If we get hit again, anytime, can our community handle it? I honestly don't know. All I know is that the volunteers are going to keep doing what they are doing," said Gieryic. 

Gieryic says they are in desperate need of money to continue helping clean up storm damage.

They are also asking for donations of Gatorade to keep volunteers hydrated.

You can drop off donations at Gieryic 's Auto Repair Shop on Dawson Road.
