KDDA Holiday Food Drive Results

KDDA recently hosted a Holiday Food Drive to benefit the East Tennessee Second Harvest Food Bank.  Holiday drop boxes were located at various host sites throughout the Knox County area including: NHC Knoxville, Dialysis Clinic Inc., UT Extension Agency, UT Department of Nutrition, Parkwest Hospital, East Tennessee Children's Hospital, Blount Memorial Hospital, and Tennova HealthCare.  In addition, monetary donations and food items were collected at the KDDA Social Event on December 6. Our goal was to collect 200 pounds of food during the four week time-frame.

Total Food Donations Collected:                            ~640 Pounds
Total Monetary Donations Collected:                       $230
Total Meals Provided to Families in East TN:          1,170

 All drop boxes collected and ready for delivery to Second Harvest!

Donations unloaded and ready to sort!

Thanks to all those who participated in the food drive!  Every donation counted!
Happy Holidays from KDDA!
