GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Two weeks after Hurricane Michael, the scene of neighbors helping neighbors is across our area. 

On Thursday, the Leon County Sheriff's Office dropped off 4,000 pounds of supplies to our neighbors in Gadsden county.

It was all thanks to donations from people across Leon County, even nearby states gave to the cause after seeing LCSO's posts about the drop-off.

Half of the food and supplies went to Jackson County, the other half to Springfield A.M.E Church in Gretna. 

"Most of them are still living in other homes. They don't have lights, they don't have food. All the food got sparred because electricity was out for 2 weeks in some locations," said Major Robert Parker with Gadsden County Sheriff's Office. "Businesses suffer, residents suffer, we're just in a strain right now. So to see all these people coming and helping us out really makes us feel good in Gadsden County." 

Anyone in Gadsden County is welcome to come and pick up supplies in Gretna starting at 8:00 a.m. Saturday.
