National Guard enlisted for Share Your Holidays drive at Alliant Energy Center
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – NBC15 Share Your Holidays is underway. After a successful kickoff, the first big event of the campaign to end hunger in southern Wisconsin is coming up this week.
On Tuesday, everyone is encouraged to join us and the National Guard at the Alliant Energy Center for our canned food drive to benefit Second Harvest. Guard members will be there from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. to collect non-perishable food donations.
Tuesday’s drive is a drive through event, so donors will not need to get out of their vehicles. Just pull up and someone will take your donation. See the list below for some suggested items to give:
- Beans (canned or dry)
- Low-sugar cereal
- Canned tuna
- Low-sodium soups and stews
- Low-sugar canned fruits
- Canned vegetables
- Peanut Butter (nut butter)
- Canned Chicken
Guard members have a history of helping in the fight against hunger. In the early days of Share Your Holidays, they were right there and ready to serve their community.
For the 25th Anniversary Share Your Holidays in 2020, they also hosted a drive-thru food drive at the Alliant Energy Center which brought back memories of the early days of working together. The soldiers who were there in 2020 were inspired by their experience.
clarification: The story has been updated to reflect that the food drive will no longer be happening at Sun Prairie West High School.
