ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - An Albany nonprofit was able to donate 17,000 pounds of water to Louisiana for Hurricane Ida victims. That comes out to about 17,000 bottles of water.

Another Level MC biker group spent last Thursday at Sam’s Club in Albany taking donations.

They collected items like water, cleaning supplies and coloring books for Louisiana families.

The president, Tyrone Robertson said he’s grateful for all those who were able to donate.

“We had so many people come by and drop off water, people drive up, went inside Sam’s, bought water and brought it back. Sam’s Club donated four palettes of water,” said Robertson.

Robertson said they are happy to call the donation drive a success and that they are planning their next charity ride.

He said on Nov. 13, they’re planning to have a charity ride to raise awareness for domestic violence.

The funds that are raised will be given to two agencies that combat domestic violence.
