Food 2 Families drive racks up record donations

The Food Bank of WNY is offering a million thanks – actually, 1.1 million – to area residents who took part in the ninth annual Food 2 Families drive on Dec. 5.

The collection, held at all Tops Friendly Markets, broke records for both food and financial donations – $166,463 in cash and 145,495 pounds of food.

In a news release, Marylou Borowiak, president and CEO of the Food Bank, expressed gratitude to Tops, WGRZ-TV and Town Square Media for sponsoring the event, and said “The food and funds raised from this drive will be used to assist our 39,054 families in need during the holidays and into the new year.”
