Wednesday's food drive has a personal side to it beside just food collection
When you're donating tomorrow at the annual "Thanksgiving Drive-thru Food Drive" at Miller Park, think beyond what kind of food have to give. Think about the people who need it. Like 55-year old Mike Maycheck. He's an Air Force veteran who has no family. He's on disability and half his monthly income of $831 goes toward his rent. He visits a food pantry once a month thanks to the efforts and guidance of the non-profit Hunger Task Force.
Our food drive has been growing stronger each and every year. Tomorrow will be the sixth annual event, five years alone at Miller Park. It runs from 5am to 6pm. CBS58 will be out there all day in addition to Hunger Task Force members and some local celebrities and major company sponsors. You are asked to donate healthy, holiday themed-items. Frozen turkeys, canned fruits and vegetables, and boxes of rice and pasta are all welcome.
