Second Harvest of South Georgia

ALBANY, GEORGIA (WALB-TV) - South Georgia food banks got a big donation from Ameris Bank.

Second Harvest of South Georgia and the Quitman United Methodist Church Food bank received $11,000 from Ameris Bank's second annual Helping Fight Hunger initiative.

In October, the bank had a food drive and collected more than 14,000 non-perishable items.

Ameris then matched the items with cash.

"Second Harvest each year usually has a mass distribution of food at Thanksgiving and this year we will not have the food to do it," said Frank Richards, the Second Harvest of South Georgia CEO. "Our local organizations are demanding of us so much right now, we can barely keep food on the shelves for local organizations."

"Right now is a tough time," said Michael Lee, the Ameris Bank president. "People are hurting and it's a way everyone can pitch in and contribute."

Frank Richards says the money will purchase nearly a tractor trailer load of food for the holiday season.
