"Heating bills go up, kids are back in school," said Channel One's Linda Olson. "Then we have the breaks you know, with the Christmas break and there is an increase and need for food and they've absolutely stepped up to the plate to help provide for that."

The money was raised last month through the "Drive-to-End-Hunger" campaign.
