TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The heat and tropical downpours don't stop volunteers from handing out food to those in need.

Second Harvest of the Big Bend, along with members of the Tallahassee Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, put together boxes of food that will help families get by.

The drive-thru food drive took place just off of West Orange Avenue at the Bethel A.M.E. Church.

Members of the National Guard were also on hand helping direct traffic and placing boxes into vehicles.

Sorority members say they are always more than willing to lend a hand to those in need.

"We're handing out meals for 500 families," said Joe Ann Houston, a member of the Tallahassee Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. "So we are really excited about what we are doing, and as you can see, we've got a lot of help and a lot of helping hands here."

About 5,000 masks were also given out to families. Members also handed out voter registration information.
