SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

America's Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia is prepping for a busy holiday season, and this year, they are getting a little extra help. A group of kayakers presented a check for more than $4,000 to the group.

The group recently raised the money by paddling aproximately 100 miles from Tybee Island, GA to reach a Widespread Panic concert in Charleston, SC.

The kayakers had already been planning the trip when they heard of the collapse of a freezer at the Second Harvest Food Bank, causing mayhem to the service. They then decided they wanted to help restock, and began raising funds for Second Harvest.

Jeff Landrum, one of the kayakers, told WTOC, "It means a lot, it really does. Second Harvest does so much for so many people and organizations in this area and it really does make it all worthwhile. All the hard days, the blisters, the soreness, it makes it all worthwhile to know we are going to put some food in some empty bowls."
