The Food Bank of Corpus Christi keeps pantries in the Coastal Ben full, not just all year long, but also during the holiday season; and they're gearing up for the Share Your Christmas Food Drive.

That Friday, Dec. 6, Kiii News teams will be at various HEB locations throughout town as Food Bank volunteers accept food and monetary donations. The Food Bank will also be at the Kiii-TV studios taking donations.

Some essential items needed are non-perishable goods, and of course monetary donations, which can help buy special items for the holidays, including turkeys. Bea Hanson, executive director of the Food Bank, said that when those in need receive turkeys, it can make a big difference for their holiday.
