South Georgia helps clean up after Sandy

(WTVM) - South Georgia agencies continue to help areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

Late yesterday, the second harvest food bank warehouse in Albany shipped out 76 pallets of water to New York, much more than was initially requested.

Thursday they expected to send 36 more pallets, nearly all of the Food Bank's disaster water supply.

"We basically have made the decision we are going to deplete our stocks, and then we'll again go and do everything we can to find them more," said Jim Case, director of Food Bank. "Because we know they would do the same for us if need be."

The American Red Cross is encouraging people to donate blood after most blood drives scheduled this week in 13 states and Washington, DC were cancelled.
