Eastland Mall hosts drive-thru food drive on Fri.

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Tri-State showed off its generosity as a drive-thru food drive was held at the Eastland Mall on Friday.

Volunteers collected food to support the Tri-State Food Bank during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The community was encouraged to drive through and drop off donations, particularly non-perishable food items.

12 members of the Indiana National Guard were at the food drive to help unload cars, so people could donate safely.

“Our friends at the mall, they’ve been supportive of Tri-State Food Bank - volunteer with us regularly," Tri-State Food Bank Executive Director Glenn Roberts said.

For people who missed the food drive and want to donate, you can visit the Tri-State Food Bank website for more information.
