Gov. Kay Ivey even stopped by to make a donation Friday morning.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we asked members of the community who were donating to stay inside their vehicles and put donations in the trunk or backseat. All volunteers were wearing a mask and gloves.

Wind Creek Wetumpka, Auburn University Montgomery and Brewbaker Motors sponsored $1,000 shopping sprees this week for donations ahead of the event.
