24th Annual NBC15 Share Your Holidays to eliminate hunger
In 1996 NBC15 News Anchor Mike McKinney was looking for the stations next big community project. Remembering back to his childhood and his family’s financial struggles, he decided to hold a food drive at a local grocery store. So at 6 am on a cold and snowy morning, the NBC15 Share Your Holidays to eliminate hunger campaign was born.
That first year Mike and other members of the community, including the National Guard, raised more than 50,000 meals for people struggling with hunger in our community. The next year, when asked about his goal for the number of meals he wanted to raise during Share Your Holidays, his response was profound, “Just one more meal!”
This year the campaign is honoring the fact that many different kinds of “one” make a difference. Whether the “one” is big (like the difference one year of enough nutritious food can make in the life of a child), or little (like sharing a social media post about hunger) every “one” helps make our community a better place to live.
Join us during the 2019 NBC15 Share Your Holidays to eliminate hunger campaign and help us provide hope to those that struggle with hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.
