MITCHELL COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - One Mitchell County church has opened up all week to provide meals for 200 storm victims each day, but the church is looking to help more.

Holy Grounds International Ministries has partnered with the City of Camilla to feed families hot meals as a local distribution center.

The church has been serving meals donated by the Red Cross since Wednesday and will continue everyday until next Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Organizers say they also need donations from the community to continue their mission.

The outreach coordinator says after each meal they will go out to neighborhoods to bring food to storm victims.

Next week they plan to help people fill out FEMA applications for storm recovery.
