MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- An army of more than 50 volunteers from Kohl's department stores showed up for they called a "combo build". They were there to sort more than 20,000 pounds of food for food pantries and at the same time, to build "stockboxes" for thousands of elderly people who need healthy food.

The new volunteer center at 50th and Electric Avenue is big enough to accommodate both jobs.

"When I think about the work that Hunger Task Force does here in Milwaukee, addressing childhood and family hunger, I really can't find something more meaningful than the partnership that we've created over more than a decade, probably a decade and a half," said Tara Geiter, Community Relations Director at Kohl's.

"Are you up for it?!" "Yeahhhh!"

Kohl's and Hunger Task Force have a long history of working together on volunteer events, but this "combo" event is a first in their partnership.
