Help for the Holidays One-Day Blitz TODAY at Krispy Kreme
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — When it comes to food donations for the Salvation Army, WWAY steps in every year to help. And it’s your chance to give and receive this holiday season.
Join WWAY and Krispy Kreme for the annual Help for the Holidays One-Day Blitz to restock the Salvation Army’s food bank TODAY. Donate at least five non-perishable food items or make at least a $5 donation and get a coupon good any day for a free dozen doughnuts at Krispy Kreme.
“The One-Day Blitz is a tremendous and incredible undertaking,” the Salvation Army’s Maj. Richard Watts said. “First of all, we inject into the community roughly 300 million calories. Krispy Kreme makes a great doughnut, and dozens and dozens of them, thousands of dozens go out into the community.”
And of course, all the food collected goes into the community, as well, to the people who need it most. In fact, the One-Day Blitz helps fill the shelves at the Salvation Army’s food pantry for months. Last year we collected nearly 16,000 lbs of food and more than $1,200.
The One-Day Blitz is at Krispy Kreme at 2822 South College Rd. in Wilmington TODAY from 6:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. The WWAY News Team will be there throughout the day. Come by and help us make a big difference in the community this Christmas and beyond!
