ABC7, Disney donates $15K to Alameda County Community Food Bank

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- ABC7's 24th annual Give Where You Live Thanksgiving food drive is helping Bay Area food banks serve those in our community who aren't sure if they have enough food for themselves or their families.

ABC7 News Weather Anchor Spencer Christian was at the Alameda County Community Food Bank in Oakland on Wednesday with a look at just how critical this holiday campaign is.

The Alameda County Community Food Bank serves 1 in 5 county residents. And for every $1 donated, they provide $6 worth of food to those in the community struggling with hunger.

On behalf of ABC7 and our parent company Disney, ABC7's Spencer Christian presented a check for $15,000 to Alameda County Community Food Bank Executive Director Suzan Bateson.

If you'd like to help, text the word FEED to number 80077 to donate $10 to Bay Area food banks. When prompted, reply with YES to confirm the donation and have it added to your phone bill.

ABC7 invites you to #ShareTheJoy this holiday season. We want to see how you're helping your community. Tag your photos or videos on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook with #abc7now.
