Pack the Pickup with Patty Peck Honda on November 20th

November 17th, 2011 by

“Pack the Pickup” is WJTV’s annual food drive to benefit the Mississippi Food Network. The MFN’s vision is to eliminate poverty-related hunger in our service area. All donations received by MFN go back to the community to help feed needy families. From 1-4 p.m. on November 20th, WJTV employees and anchors will be at the Kroger in Flowood, MS (Dogwood) collecting non-perishable items in an attempt to fill one or more pickup trucks with donations.

Join Patty Peck Honda and WJTV this Sunday, November 20th and help the Mississippi Food Network. We will have two Patty Peck Honda Ridgelines holding donations, and we hope you can help as we “Pack the Pickup” to fight hunger this holiday season! More than 600, 000 Mississippians live in poverty, but with your donation we can change this number — every item counts! Patty Peck Honda is proud to sponsor Pack the Pickup. Here are some needed items:

-canned fruits

-canned vegetables

-canned soups/gravies

-canned meat

-cake mixes

-macaroni and cheese

-boxed stuffing mix

-boxed mashed or scalloped potatoes

-peanut butter

Thank you for your support and we will see you Sunday, November 20th from 1-4 at the Kroger location in Dogwood/Flowood!
