Each year, WESH2 News calls upon our community to help those in need during the annual Share Your Christmas food and fund drive, and this year you did NOT disappoint!
The 32nd Annual Share Your Christmas kicked off in a big way on Giving Tuesday on Tuesday, November 28. With the help of a very generous $25,000 match from Mullinax Ford, over $100,000 was raised by generous donors in just ONE DAY! Absolutely incredible.
The generosity did not stop there. Following Giving Tuesday, the news crew from WESH2 and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida representatives and volunteers were out in the field, collecting food and monetary donations in Volusia, Brevard, Marion, Osceola and Orange Counties! Overall $147,661 and more than 30,000 pounds of food were raised to help our community this holiday season. That is the equivalent of over 615,645 meals for our neighbors in need! WOW!
On behalf of Second Harvest Food Bank and our neighbors in need, a very special thank you to WESH2 News, Larry Mullinax with Mulliinax Ford, Daytona International Speedway, Brevard County Government Complex, Paddock Mall, Gatorland, and especially to everyone that volunteered, tuned in, gave us a call, came out to visit a donation site, and supported the cause!
THANK YOU for Sharing Your Christmas!
