'Stock the Shelves' off to strong start
The 2013 "Stock the Shelves" Do It! drive for local food pantries is off to a strong start with more than $3,500 in donations in the first week of the campaign.
Oshkosh Northwestern Media set a goal of raising $70,000 to fight hunger in the Oshkosh community as part of a $659,000 total target for 10 Gannett Wisconsin Media markets across the state. As of Friday morning, contributions totaling $3,595 have been received.
The challenge is a partnership with the J.J. Keller Foundation, Winnebago Chapter of Credit Unions, Express Convenience Centers and the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation. All donations stay in local communities to combat hunger.
