MY TURN: A reason to give

We want to thank everyone who came out this week to participate in the Action News 5 Holiday Food Drive. This is a time when the Mid-South Food Bank really needs the help, and you responded in a big way.

Hundreds of people came out to locations throughout our viewing area to drop off food and monetary donations. We had the opportunity to meet many of you and we heard some great stories from people about why they made the effort to drop off a donation. Many people told us they were giving because at one time they needed help themselves.

As always, it's a fun to see the youngest donors. They may have only had a little bit to give, but they had a big understanding of the importance of sharing with those who are less fortunate.

We also want to thank all of our partners on this project who contributed the resources that made it possible. From the people at the Mid-South Food Bank and all of us here at WMC-TV 5, thank you for making our Holiday Food Drive a great success.

That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email or call 800-465-1210.
