GEORGIA (WTXL) - Second Harvest of South Georgia is packing another 1,200 disaster relief boxes for those affected by Hurricane Maria.

Second Harvest has raised relief boxes for both hurricanes Irma and Harvey.

They are asking that community members sponsor a box. $20 will provide one box to a family.

Boxes will include non-perishable items, such as canned tuna, peanut butter and paper towels.

Chief marketing executive Eliza McCall says they need all the support they can get.

"The need is tremendous from what we are hearing," McCall explained. "So we are going to work with Feed America Network to make sure these boxes get to the families that need them."

Second Harvest hopes to raise at least $25,000 to provide the 1,200 boxes.
