“We are so thankful to all those who stopped by and donated food and money that will go directly to those who are in need,” FOX 11 Vice – President and General Manager, Jay Zollar said. “We are also grateful for all food pantries throughout northeast Wisconsin who demonstrate their love for others by gathering and distributing these items.
