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."
