ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany charity group is working to help the homeless in the Dougherty County area, one backpack at a time.

Moving Mountains Charity inc. is collecting new backpacks, non-perishable food, and personal hygiene items. 

Co-Executive Director, Martha Jane Palmer Bowden says by March she along with Albany Family Worship Center will host a day to fill the backpacks. 

Later in the spring, the two organizations will hand them out to those in need.

"It means a lot to me because we're supposed to be taking care of each other," explained Bowden, "We're supposed to love thy neighbor, even when they are not so lovable. A lot of people don't want to think about the homeless and think about what they can do--they're a little scared. So this actually means a lot to me."

You can help Moving Mountains Inc., by getting in touch with Bowden here or calling her at 229-894-8335.
