(KSLA) -

Thousands of pounds of food were donated Wednesday at 5 collections sites around the ArkLaTex for the KSLA Holiday Food Drive.

From Shreveport and Bossier to Natchitoches, Marshall and Texarkana, donations came throughout the day, filling up barrels and barrels with non-perishable foods in an inspiring demonstration of giving spirit and generosity.

In Marshall, one man who only wants to be identified as Corey, wanted to see even more given, so he showed up with a $1,500 donation. That will translate into 13,000 meals.

While the KSLA Holiday Drive is over, the giving doesn't have to end.

Donations can still be made to any of the following organizations, and volunteers are always welcome:
