FOOD AND CLOTHING BANK
The Food Pantry is funded by St. Marys on the Hill from Augusta, Georgia, Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Vidalia, and the Toombs, Montgomery and Wheeler Counties United Way. We provided food baskets to over 162 families monthly. In addition, American Second Harvest Food Bank in Savannah sponsors a monthly Food Distribution that is organized and managed by Southeast Georgia Communities Project, Inc. SEGCP and 25 committed volunteers come together every third Friday of each month and serve over 450 families from Toombs and surrounding counties at Partin Park in Lyons.

January 312 families

Clothing Bank provides an assortment of items, depending on donations. This usually includes clothing, shoes, accessories and household items as well as bedding, furniture and misc. stuff. as foods. SEGCP will gladly accept your donations of new/gently used clothing and household items. SEGCP wants to keep our clothing closet stocked year round for our families. All items donated are free to needy families.
Without the support from our sponsors, our agency could not meet the demands for emergency food and clothing assistance for our needy community. Utility assistance, and medical transportation is also a service we provide on a limited bases. We are presently serving over 50 families with these services on an annual bases.
SEGCP has a monthly American Second Harvest Food Bank Distribution Program scheduled every third Friday of each month from 11 am to 2 pm at Partin Park in Lyons, Georgia.
Thanks for the support of Chief Wesley Walker, LPD, Lyons Recreation Department Director, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Toombs, Montgomery & Wheeler County United Way, St. Mary's on the Hill in Augusta, and the over 25 committed volunteers who come to help make this possible.
