ABC11 Together highlights the strength of the human spirit, good deeds, community needs, and how our viewers can help
The community response to the ABC11 Hurricane Relief Food Drive was incredible!

We collected more than 15 truckloads of food and household items, which adds up to more than 63,000 meals.

Additionally, more than $130,000 was raised. That translates to another 650,000 meals.

So far, the donations total up to more than 713,000 meals for those in need. Wow!!!

If you missed the Food Drive, which ended at 7 p.m., you can still click here to securely donate to the Food Bank.

There are so many we want to thank, including all of the amazing people in our region who came out to help. Here are just a few to start:

There were large monetary donations from:

  • BASF

  • North Carolina Vending Association

  • Kuraray America Manufacturing in Fayetteville

And large donations of food and household goods from:

  • BFD International

  • SAS

  • Allscripts

  • Duke Energy

  • Accounting Principals

  • Bernhard MCC

  • Woodcrest Apartments

  • Ivy Creek Community

  • Carolina Comfort Air

  • New Hope Painting

And also large food and goods donations from our great community partners:

  • Carrboro Police

  • Fayetteville Register of Deeds

  • Durham County Sheriff's Office

  • VFW 6018

And churches from all over North Carolina, schools across the region, and parents, children and families.

A HUGE thank you to our radio partners, who helped spread the word:

  • Foxy 107.1-104.3

And we would never have gotten all of this food loaded and delivered without the help of:

  • Trosa

  • Superior Bakery

  • And loads of food bank volunteers

District court judge and adjunct Fayetteville state professor Cheri Siler-Mack gave her criminal justice class a 100 test score if they came out to volunteer.
