For over 20 years WAFF 48 Can-A-Thon has joined forces with some very special local agencies to help people who are struggling to improve their lives. To do this we work closely with non-profit community organizations to collect food for those who need it most. The food collected stays in the county in which it was collected. Every year the Tennessee Valley donates hundreds of thousands of cans of food. Food banks across the country are stretched thin in the aftermath of the recession, and are bracing for more people coming through their doors in the wake of cuts to the federal food stamp program. This is the time when most food banks receive more than half of their donations during the year. The flip side is that more people turn to food banks for help during this time as well. You'll find a complete list of Can-A-thon drop off sites on WAFF.Com. Let's give from the heart this holiday season.
