NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Join News 8 for the Gr8 Thanksgiving Food Drive this weekend!

This year, the need is greater than ever before. There are two ways to give.

On Saturday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., many familiar faces from News 8 will be at the Connecticut Food Bank in Wallingford on 2 Research Parkway, It’s located right off of Interstate-91, so you can drive up and make a safe, touchless donation.

Turkeys are welcome, as are any nonperishables, which can be stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy, canned vegetables, and canned fruit. The food bank is urging people to look for items low in salt and low in sugar to donate. Also, please refrain from donating goods in glass containers.

And if can’t make it to the event, click here to make a monetary donation.

Every item collected and dollar raised will provide meals for those in need right here in Connecticut!
