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.
