Heartland Cares Virtual Food Drive
Presented by the SEMO Food Bank and KFVS12
Please donate to the Virtual Holiday Food Drive to help Heartland families this holiday season
KFVS12 is teaming up with the SEMO Food Bank for this important VIRTUAL food drive. This year you can donate without leaving your home.
Families need your help more than ever this holiday season. In the past three months the SEMO Food Bank has provided for more than 80,000 individuals per month.
According to the food bank, “The holidays can be difficult financially for any family, but particularly for those who are lower income because they don’t have as much income left to buy gifts after they make the rent or mortgage, car payment, utilities, medical expenses, groceries and just the general things you need to live. Because of that we try to do more food distributions during this time of year.”
For more information, please call the SEMO Food Bank at 573-471-1818, or visit them on-line
