Second Harvest in critical need of donations for holiday season

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - 'Tis the season to share a warm meal with family and friends, but some needy folks in our community may go without if the shelves aren't filled at America's Second Harvest Food Bank.

With the holidays right around the corner, the food bank is hoping people open their pantry to the food bank as they have a critically low supply of food.

Executive Director Mary Jane Crouch says they are concerned they will not have enough food this holiday season to meet the most vulnerable in our community, the children and elderly.

Crouch is hoping that people open their hearts this holiday season and donate to the food bank, so they have the resources to feed our neighbors in need.

"Anything people give is greatly appreciated. Just as you are sitting down to eat your Thanksgiving dinner, remember there are those not having a Thanksgiving dinner. Clean out your pantry, pack an extra bag of groceries and drop it by the food bank." says Crouch.

The food bank needs donations of non-perishable foods and accepts all food items that are labeled and unopened.
