The Coastal Bend Food Bank said the amount of food donated at this year's Share Your Christmas food drive was more than in 2016.

Between participating H-E-B stores and the donations made at the Kiii-TV studios Friday, more than 38,000 pounds of food was collected. That does not include monetary donations made at stores and online.

From Kiii-TV to everyone who helped make this year's Share Your Christmas a success -- thank you.
