FOX 44 and ABC 22 Feed a Family Drive


Thank you!

Together we collected 7,500lbs of non-perishable food items and $7,000 in donations! Combined, this provides enough to serve 21,000 meals to those in need! 

A special thanks goes out to our sponsors (MyWebGrocer, Shaws and Burlington Hyundai) and to our community for making this event a success! Without your help and donations, this wouldn't have been possible.
