Dump Hunger


By Brittany Cooper

The Salvation Army has partnered up with a local equipment company to 'dump hunger'.
Western States Equipment Company has got involved in trying to help the local food banks in the region.
Officials with the company say that instead of an annual company dinner - they would participate in the food drive.
The campaign began on December 22nd and they hope to receive enough food that will fill the bed of a caterpillar 730 dump truck.
Alfred Crane says, "We put this together to try and help get our local food banks. we have 11 stores that are doing it and what we're trying to is to get enough food to fill this truck which is about 75 thousand pounds and as of last Monday we were at 37,500."
They plan to be at the upcoming kmvt's Agri-action 2009.
Western States will match the dollar value of all food collected with a value up to 15-thousand.
