(KSLA) - KSLA News 12 is once again collecting food this holiday season to help feed ArkLaTex families in need.
During the drive on Wednesday, December 2, people brought non-perishable items such as cereal, canned vegetables, canned meat, soup and candy to several collection locations throughout our viewing area.
Those locations include Yokem Toyota and Word of God Ministries in Shreveport and Wray Ford in Bossier City.
In Natchitoches, items were brought to Legacy Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
In Marshall, we were at East Texas Baptist University. In Texarkana, the food was dropped off at Red River Credit Union on Summerhill Rd.
The collection locations accepted donations from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday.
The donations will be distributed by local food banks to those in need through partner agencies around the ArkLaTex, including the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, the Food Bank of Central Louisiana, Harvest Texarkana Regional Food Bank and Mission Marshall.
