WCTY-UW-TVCCA Food Drive
'Tis the season for giving, and what better way than to join with United Way and TVCCA for the annual Food Drive! Our total this year for the WCTY-UW-TVCCA food drive was 8,480 pounds of food; the equivalent of 7,067 meals. We increased our poundage this year by 643 pounds, and we couldn't have done it without the help of our community. Thank you everyone for your support, and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
