Warner Robins nonprofit partners with restaurant to help the homeless

"Love is more important than anything else, love is more important than hate, love is the best thing," business owner Gigi Tebbe said.

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — Correction: A previous version of the story contained inaccurate information about the event, and it has since been corrected.

A Warner Robins nonprofit is partnering with a restaurant to help the homeless with an event this weekend.

The Lending Hand will be hosting Labor of Love, where they’ll be providing personal care bags filled with deodorant, toothpaste, first aid kits and more to those in need.

People at the event will also be receiving a hot meal from Gigi Tebbe, the owner of the Sushi Thai restaurant on Watson Boulevard.

"These people who are hungry right now, my goodness. I will be the happiest person to be able to feed them. I've been looking around for a long time, you know, love is more important than anything else, love is more important than hate, love is the best thing," said Tebbe.

The event will be held on Saturday, April 24 and is open to everyone in Central Georgia. It will be from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Home Depot parking lot on Watson, and from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Ollie’s parking lot on North Houston Road.
