The 6abc/Dunkin’ Donuts Holiday Food Drive is in full swing and will get a boost today on Giving Tuesday with the annual 6abc/Dunkin’ Donuts Holiday Food Drive telethon. “With the support of our community and our corporate partners, we’re thrilled to be in our 33rd year to battle hunger in our area.” said Bernie Prazenica, WPVI’s general manager. “Donating is as simple as picking up your phone or clicking on your computer. One dollar provides two meals, so no contribution is too small.”
The effort is in full swing and will get a boost today on Giving Tuesday with the annual 6abc/Dunkin’ Donuts Holiday Food Drive telethon.
Phone lines will be open from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Viewers will have a chance to chat with Action News talent and other celebrity volunteers and sponsors when they call to make a donation.
WPVI, along with its parent company Disney, are happy to donate a $15,000 Feeding America grant to Philabundance this year.
Disney has committed $1 million overall to Feeding America Food banks across the U.S. to help expand local fresh produce sourcing and distribution programs that serve kids and families who need it most.
Proceeds from the 6abc/Dunkin’ Donuts Holiday Food Drive benefit Philabundance, Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Food Bank of South Jersey, Food Bank of Delaware, Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley and Northeast Philadelphia, Greater Berks Food Bank, and other local food charities.
