MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - During its 100th anniversary tour, Chicken of The Sea donated $10,000 to help fund Volunteer Odyssey during Saturday's Memphis Redbirds game.

The group helps provide week-long experiences to volunteers looking to lend a helping hand in local community. Team members also learn job skills and how to help out other participants.

Group leaders say the money will go a long way.

"With $10,000, we'll be able to sponsor Volunteer Odyssey weeks for job seekers in the Memphis area," Volunteer Odyssey President and CEO, Sarah Petschonek.
