More than a quarter million pounds of food collected as part of ’10 Days of Giving’

More than a quarter million pounds of foods are ready to now be given to people in need.

The 10 Days of Giving food drive wrapped up earlier this week in Winona.

During the drive, people were encouraged to stop at events and donate money and canned goods.

This years total of 254,075 pounds of food is nearly 50,000 pounds more than last year’s total.

Since the 10 Days of Giving drive started, 3.5 million pounds of food has been collected.
