FREEPORT (WREX) — WREX’s 6th annual Freeport Food Drive at Cornerstone Credit Union was a huge success thanks to you.
On Friday, we collected tons of food and thousands of dollars for six Freeport food pantries. From 5 a.m., the community showed up to donate to people in need.
13 WREX started this food drive six years ago when the Freeport Area Church Cooperative had to close its doors because it ran out of food for people in need. When 13 WREX found out about this, we decided to hold a food drive to help the pantry open. Since then, we have been back every eyar and have expanded the drive to include multiple pantries.
