Local food bank receives 10,000 dollar donation


Eau Claire (WQOW) Easter is this weekend and that means family feasts for many, but some struggle every day to put food on the table.

 Today, an organization that helps hungry families received over 10,000 dollars from Chilson Subaru in Eau Claire.

For the past five years people who bought a new Subaru from Chilson's have had the opportunity to donate 250 dollars to a local charity. It is called the Share the Love event. The donations have added up to more than 10,000 dollars. Chilson Subaru said there is a specific reason why they chose to give the money to Feed My People this year.

"We picked Feed My People because of what they do and how many people that they serve. They serve not just people here in Eau Claire, but throughout our community," she said.

With the donation the food bank will be able to provide 100,000 pounds of food for people in need.
