News 8 holiday food drive a big success


A big thank you to everyone who came out this morning and donated to our Holiday Food Drive.

Volunteers, girl scouts, and our News 8 team greeted generous folks outside the ShopRite in East Haven.

Dozens of folks came out with good and even opened their wallets.

The Connecticut Food Bank told us they still need to collect about 2-thousand turkeys before Thanksgiving, and hundreds came in Saturday at our drive.

The goal was to fill two truck loads of non-perishable food items for Thanksgiving.

News 8 and Bank of America were proud sponsors of the event.
