‘Joy of Sharing’ to support La Crosse area non-profit organizations

Drive is Friday at Festival Foods in Onalaska

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – News 8 Now is celebrating the joys of sharing during a one day event at Festival Foods in Onalaska.

Your Donations on Friday will support several local organizations, including Hunger Task Force.

While there is a need for support every year demand this season is up.

Your donations can make a difference.

“People are furloughed from their jobs that are used to working. And used to not having to look for help at Christmas time. So there is going to be a lot more people in need. And in fact, we’ve seen probably four to five hundred more families than usual,” said Hunger Task Force executive director Shelly Fortner.

Everything starts at five this Friday morning.

We will be there until 6:30 that evening.

Stop by and drop off donations of toys, food and cash to help the Hunger Task Force, Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army.
