Benedictine cadets help Second Harvest

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - America's Second Harvest is getting a big boost from some military cadets.

It's an annual tradition that helps feed those less fortunate. Cadets from Benedictine Military School raised more than 100,000 pounds of food in their drive and donated it to America's second harvest. Each year, it proves to be the single largest offering in the region for the charity organization. Those involved say it's a great way to have much needed food on hand for those who struggle during the winter months.

"So we're always excited when they do this. It helps us get through the winter. We have tons of food drives going on right now. It's really nice because this is going to bring it all in at the end. We have a 300 thousand pound goal so this is going to help us with that goal tremendously," said Mary Jane Crouch of America's Second Harvest.
