Last year, the police department received enough donations to send relief to victims of Hurricane Irma and Maria.

"Our community filled two tractor trailers in two days. This community is awesome and I know we will be in a position to help our neighbors in North Carolina after the storm passes," said Lt. Brown.

Donations can be dropped off at the Peachtree City Police Department 24 hours a day for the next several days. The address is 350 Georgia Highway 74.
