Do you want to give back this holiday season, but you’re overwhelmed by the seemingly endless ways to help? Don’t sweat! We’ve taken the stress out of giving and rounded up the ongoing food drives benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and our national partner Feeding America.
Let’s get to giving!
