FREEPORT (WREX) — The sixth annual Freeport Food Drive is happening Friday.
13 WREX will be at the Cornerstone Credit Union located at 550 W. Meadows Drive until 7 p.m. collecting donations that will fill Freeport area food pantries.
We are accepting non-perishable items as well as cash donations.
In 2014, the Freeport Area Church Cooperative had to close its doors because it ran out of food for people in need. When 13 WREX found this out, we decided to hold a food drive to help the pantry open back again. Since then, we’ve been back every year and have expanded the drive to include multiple pantries.
13 WREX will broadcast live throughout the day at the credit union. We hope to see you and we hope you join our effort to give back to the Freeport community!
