On Saturday, December 12th, the crew helped put on an 8-hour live TV and radio broadcast from Mount Vernon’s City Hall. During the broadcast, over $192,000 and 65 truckloads of food were collected for the Salvation Army and Interchurch Social Services. The truckloads of food represent 101,400 pounds of food (50.7 tons of food)!
These donations will help to feed thousands of families all over the Knox County area throughout 2016.
