Verizon Wireless to donate $5,000 to Mountaineer Food Bank

Posted: Updated:

Verizon Wireless will donate $5,000 to Mountaineer Food Bank, following food shortages from Hurricane Sandy, according to a news release.

Mountaineer Food Bank said its numbers have gone up since Hurricane Sandy hit.

Thousands of people were without power in the days following the storm. Many of the victims lost all of the food in their fridge.

Verizon Wireless is also collecting non-perishable food items at its West Virginia locations.

Those donations will also go to Mountaineer Food Bank.
