Rotary Club Donates Thanksgiving Food Supplies to Food Bank

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is exactly three weeks away, and thanks to one local civic group, more than 1,000 needy families won't have to worry about having a Thanksgiving meal.

The Rotary Club of Corpus Christi spent much of Thursday evening at the Food Bank, packing up 1,500 boxes with holiday essentials for those who might otherwise go without.

Last year, the Food Bank handed out more than five-million pounds of food in an 11-county area.

Kiii News Reporter Michael Gibson went Live at the Food Bank of Corpus Christi to show what is going on there.
