CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – Many people in our region struggle with food security each day. With the pandemic still in full swing and the holidays quickly approaching, local charities need our help more than ever.
So today, Thursday, Nov. 12, WOWK 13 News is working for you by teaming up with the Mountain Mission Foodbank to collect donations of canned and non-perishable food items. Our news team will be at local Piggly Wigglys in Kanawha City, Sissonville and Charleston throughout the day until 6 p.m.
To make donating easier, there are prepackaged bags inside the stores to purchase, some for $10 and some for $20, or if you want to donate those extra canned and nonperishable foods from home, drive by and honk the horn and someone will come to you to get the items.
Before COVID-19, one in six adults and one in four children do not have access to quality food in West Virginia. 100% of your donations stay right here in our community and go directly to our programs.
You can also help local families now and in the future by supporting Mountain Mission’s COVID-19 Emergency Food Program.
You can also donate to Mountain Mission any time at www.mountainmission.com. We hope you’ll come meet us and help our neighbors have a better holiday season.
