NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

East Texas News wants to say thank you to those who participated in last night's KTRE Pineywoods Fair Food Drive. Your help made it a complete success.

This morning your collective donations of thousands of cans of food were evenly divided between the providers of Godtel, Harvest House, H.O.P.E., and the Cushing Food Bank.

“We collected just over 72 boxes or a little over 3,000 cans this year,” said Laura Reina, a KTRE account executive and the coordinator of the food drive. “It's another great year and we're all just very appreciative of everyone that came out and helped up make another successful year. We're going to help a lot of people in Nacogdoches."

All the food bank representatives didn't leave without saying a big thank you as well. They say the food will be distributed right away to those in need.
