For those struck by last week's storms, the cleanup seems never ending.

That's where people like Bria Kitchens are stepping in.

"Non-perishable food items; I've got some canned food, I've got some vegetables," she says, pulling donations out of her car's trunk.

She plans on delivering any donations she can drum up this week to counties across Georgia and Alabama devastated by the storms.

"Anything that's salvageable has to be disinfected, so bleach is a huge help for these folks; disinfecting wipes," says Kitchens.

She's hoping to collect enough donations including drivers, money, and food items to caravan across the state.

But that's not the only way to help those affected by those in need.

The Red Cross is looking for volunteers to help clean up and rebuild Tuscaloosa.

Just visit their website at: www.CentralGA-RedCross.org. Click the volunteer tab and begin filling out the paperwork.

The Red Cross also accepts monetary donations to help relief efforts right here in Central Georgia and surrounding areas.

You can text Red Cross to 9099 to donate $10 that will be added to your cell phone bill.

If you interested in donating to the Red Cross you can their Central Georgia office at 478-743-8671 or mail your donations to: 195 Holt Avenue, Macon, GA 31201.

"Georgians are an amazingly strong, resilient bunch of folks, and I know that with all of us coming together to help, we're going to get these folks back on their feet," says Kitchens.

Kitchens plans to set out with donations and a helping hand this Saturday.

If you'd like to help Kitchens in her relief efforts, you can contact her at 478-258-7287.
