Drive Drop & Donate

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - It's time to Drive, Drop and Donate, Treasure Valley!

KBOI TV is teaming up with Bronco Motors, RC Willey, The Idaho Press-Tribune, for the 7th annual Drive, Drop and Donate campaign - the annual food collection drive that helps restock the shelves at the Idaho Food Bank.

The food drive is taking place Friday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. at various locations throughout the Treasure Valley. ** Donate Now **

"Every year, KBOI asks the Treasure Valley to help us gather food for the Idaho Food Bank, and every year our viewers come through-filling our donation barrels and helping us raise much-needed funds," said Sean McBride, KBOI-TV promotions manager.

"We're thrilled to be a part of this important community event, and along with our corporate partners, we hope to continue fighting hunger here at home for years to come."

We will be collecting non-perishable food items as well as taking monetary donations for the Idaho Food Bank. The collection effort will be broadcast throughout the day on KBOI-TV, Channel 2 and CW 2.2. You may look for additional coverage on KBOI2.com and on the station's Facebook page.

The Idaho Food Bank and their statewide network of partner agencies provided 10.57 million pounds of emergency food to families, children and senior citizens during 2011.

That works out to 8.8 million meals for hungry Idahoans and represents a 90 percent increase in food distribution since 2008. Obviously, there is a great need for this food.
