MITCHELL COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - There are over 400 lineman in Mitchell County helping to restore power.

With this many lineman in the county, a few people got together to help them out as a way of saying thank you. 

Volunteers have gathered at the Mitchell County EMC building to help feed the lineman. They are cooking them breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Volunteers are also washing their clothes.

Brett Tucker, a volunteer, said he heard that the EMC needed volunteers, so he brought his love for cooking to the county. 

"This area of the state is certainly home. I come from Irwin County. This area is not unlike that area and you just want to help. That's the primary reason for me being here," said Tucker. 

Tucker said they are always looking for more volunteers.
