LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Our community is once again showing its generosity when it comes to helping those in need.
News 8 hosted a food drive for the Hunger Task Force Friday morning as part of the 15th anniversary celebration for Jennifer Livingston and Bill Graul on the morning show.
The drive lasted from 6 until 10 in the morning with people driving through the north end of Riverside Park to drop off canned goods and other non-perishable items. More than 1,900 pounds of food was donated, along with $500 in monetary donations.
The executive director of the Hunger Task Force says it will go a long ways in helping people right here in our community.
