3,000 Bags Of Food To Be Delivered Today

Omaha, NE - A large and loving donation will be delivered today to Nebraska's biggest food pantry, all thanks to Hy-Vee customers.

In just one week, during their "Stuff a Truck" food drive, Hy-Vee collected nearly 3,000 bags of food, worth more than $14,000.  Last year, they collected just over 1,600 bags of food.

Today, volunteers will deliver the food to Heartland Hope Mission, where they will hand it out to those in need.

The Mission provides a weeks' supply of groceries, hygiene products and clothing, to the working poor.

The faith-based charitable organization is located at 5218 S. 21st Street in Omaha. (21st & Q)
