The NBC15 Share Your Holidays food/fund drive bins are now at all of the properties!! NBC15’s goal this year is 2.7 million meals for people in the Madison area struggling with hunger. This is the 19th anniversary of the Share Your Holidays campaign and Second Harvest Foodbank is serving 83% more people since 2006. If you would rather make a monetary contribution you can donate here. NBC15 and T.R. McKenzie thank you for your support!
A few things to remember before making your donations:
- Check the expiration dates. Canned foods do have expiration dates on them and food pantries end up having to throw a lot of expired food.
- If you can donate canned or dried fruits and vegetables they are always appreciated. Making sure people are not just fed, but given the proper nutrients is a huge help to over all health.
- Low sugar cereals, juice boxes and peanut butter are also great alternatives to canned foods.
- Please avoid donating items packaged in glass.
