Hurricane Matthew

Savannah, GA (WTOC) – It is the season of giving, especially for local organizations heading into their busy season with the holidays. But this year resources are especially needed after the toll Hurricane Matthew took on Coastal Georgia. America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia received a special donation to help them help others. Organization officials said the money they received is going to make all the difference in their service this holiday season.

Nam Dae Mun Farmers Market donated over $18,000 to the organization. They are based in Atlanta, with no ties to the area, but the manager for the company said they felt compelled to help out this community. “Finding out that there is still a great need and that America’s Second Harvest is doing their best to help all the families that continue to have needs,” said Kathy Rivers of Nam Dae Mun. “But that they were devastated and that many more people, you know, still find themselves in need.” America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia said the money will go toward funding their programs to end hunger in the area. They say the need is even greater this year after much of their resources were put toward helping people after the storm.
