For over 20 years the WAFF 48 Can-A-Thon has joined forces with some very special local food banks 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 thinner every year but the need continues to grow. WAFF 48 is also proud to work with the Salvation Army and the “Angle Tree” program as well as the “Joy of Sharing” project both granting holiday wishes for hundreds of children and their families. Give what you can this holiday season to the many great charities in our area. Your generous donations can mean the difference in helping those who have little feel a little more thankful this holiday season. I'm Vanessa Oubre, that's My Take What's Yours?
