TYLER (KYTX) - The second annual Glocal Giving Day is underway at CBS19. The idea is to help feed people globally and locally. People are donating money for children in East Africa and food for hungry people in East Texas.
No Hungry Children and St. Paul Children's Foundation have teamed up with us for this event once again and they say the donations mean more than you know.
"It helps me out because with the cost of food so high that i need the extra food. And then, it also helps with the nutrition of the food because on the low income, you know, we're limited to what we can buy in a grocery store."
"If we didn't do this, they wouldn't even have food. And, all they get is rice and beans. And, they're still the happiest kids ever."
Just one dollar feeds a child in Africa for an entire week.
You can bring food and funds to our station in Tyler now until 7 p.m.
And in Longview, take items to Fenton Honda from 8:30 in the morning until 7 p.m.
