MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The River Region community donated over $36,000 at the 16th annual WSFA Summer Fund and Food Drive!

One donation was $25,000 from Renfroe’s Market.

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

WSFA 12 News and our partners at Dixie Electric Cooperative held the event at Renfroe’s Market on Eastchase Parkway.

We accepted non-perishables and cash donations.

All donations will go to the Montgomery Area Food Bank, which covers 35 of Alabama’s 67 counties and provides meals to around 400,000 families in need.

Last year alone MAFB distributed almost 32 million pounds of food. Despite these efforts, the need for food continues to grow. It’s why we continue to do this project during the summer and during the holidays.

Due to the pandemic, the event wasn’t held in 2020.
