WDTN-TV kicks off its 36 annual Food for Friends campaign Wednesday, November 8 and will run through Sunday, December 24, with corporate sponsors Kroger and DP&L employees including Local 175.
“For nearly 40 years WDTN has been committed to fighting hunger in the Miami Valley,” said Joe Abouzeid, WDTN-TV Vice President & General Manager. “When you see those familiar barrels this holiday season we hope you’ll consider donating to help those in need.”
Since 1982, when WDTN-TV developed the first Food for Friends campaign, over 13 million food items have been collected and distributed to needy families through The Foodbank of Dayton and other food pantries throughout the Miami Valley.
Food for Friends barrels will be located in Kroger stores throughout Montgomery, Logan, Preble, Clark, Clinton, Miami, Shelby, Darke, and Greene counties.
