Volunteers with AT&T are working with 23 charities in Georgia, including one in Macon, to deliver surplus disaster relief supplies.
More than 20 18-wheelers are delivering more than 1.2 million sanitizing products around the state, including items to Middle Georgia Community Food Bank of Macon, according to a news release. All the items will be delivered by Thursday.
The items previously had been allotted for AT&T disaster recovery efforts.
The (AT&T) Pioneers is a network of volunteers whose mission is to effect tangible change in local communities, Dee Gonzalez, vice president of Georgia Chapter 124 of the Pioneers, said in the release. When we realized these products were available for donating, we felt it was important to identify charities and organizations throughout Georgia that could put these items to good use.
