Great Savannah Canned Food Drive: Record breaking generosity

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A huge holiday surprise for America’s Second Harvest food bank!
 
The City of Savannah employees and public doubled the number of cans they've ever donated!
 
In total, they contributed more than 50,000 cans for the hungry Friday at the Savannah Civic Center.

It's all part of the Great Savannah Canned Food Drive.  This is the third year for the drive and the biggest one by far.
 
"To even get what we got last year, was so unbelievable and then today when we got there and I found out it was double, I called back to the office and I was like, 'Get ready because they doubled it this year!" said Mary Jane Crouch, executive director of America's Second Harvest.
 
The winner of the coveted "Most Generous Bureau Trophy" was also announced.  First place went to Leisure Services with more than 5,000 cans collected.
