Quad City businesses are delivering their donated food to the River Bend Foodbank in Davenport on Friday, February 28th, 2014.
The businesses have pledged to donate canned food and other non perishable items to the corporate challenge of the Student Hunger Drive. News 8 is a proud partner of the corporate challenge. In fact, Wednesday, February 19th, the station was an all day drop off location for the event.
During the month of February, all the businesses competed to see who could collect the most pounds of food per employee. News 8 is competing against the Quad City Times to see which media outlet can collect the most.
The delivery drop off runs until 5 p.m. Friday at the food bank on Kimmel Drive in Davenport. Organizers will not announce how much each business brought in until Wednesday, March 5th, 2014. The hunger drive will hold an event at the Moline Hy-Vee on 7th Street that night. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. If you can’t donate in person to the hunger drive, click here.
