27,000 lbs. of food collected at the Bill Brooks' Food for Families Drive on Friday, Nov. 22, 2013

WPTV held our annual Bill Brooks' Food for Families drive on Friday, November 22, 2013. We accepted your donations of canned and non-perishable food items between 5 a.m. and 6:30 p.m outside the NewsChannel 5 studio.

We collected food items for the less fortunate in our community. Over 27,000 pounds of food were collected.

Earlier this month we held our first-ever food drive on the Treasure Coast which collected more than 4,000 pounds of food. All of your donated food goes to local agencies that help feed the less fortunate.

Thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts!

Note: We cannot distribute food at the event on Friday. All donations will be given to local agencies, who in turn provide the items to needy families in the area.
