WJTV 12 team collects cans for the holiday

Local News
WJTV 12 Thanksgiving Food Drive

It’s a favorite time of the year for the staff at WJTV 12. We joined I Heart Radio and U.P.S. to gather much needed non-perishable food for the Mississippi Food Network. And our community showed up and showed out! 

Check out Terrance Friday’s live report from 6 p.m. and take a look at the list below.

A steady stream of people gave from a list of goods at four Kroger locations in the tri-county area. It is definitely as much of a bright spot for the volunteers to be out in the sunshine and to visit with friends and viewers.

The Mississippi Food Network collects food to serve people statewide. If you would like to donate toward meals this Thanksgiving. Here is a list of things to choose from. Just one or two cans can make the all the difference, not just now but all year long!
