Food Drive Follow-Up

You have helped make the annual holiday food drive a tremendous success. 

The High Plains Food Bank says 69-thousand-724 pounds of food were collected from Monday through Saturday last week.

NewsChannel 10's Walt Howard was out at United Market Street all last week garnering support for the effort.

And although the generosity was overwhelming, the food bank says the season for giving is only beginning. 

If you would like to help donate to the High Plains Food Bank visit their website or call (806) 374-8562.

Items needed this year include: canned vegetables, canned fruit and meat, canned soups, canned chili and stews, boxed dinners, peanut butter, frozen whole turkeys, paper products and personal hygiene items.
