ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The Salvation Army of Winnebago County is in the midst of its 45th Annual Food for the Needy Drive. They are asking for more businesses to participate in the Food for the Needy Drive by requesting barrels.

The goal is to collect non-perishable food items for the 3,000+ families and individuals who will register for Christmas food assistance. We are in great need for more participation by businesses and organizations to request food barrels.

To help, food barrels can be delivered to your business or organization by emailing or by calling 815-997-6917.

Cash or checks are also appreciated to support the food drive as food will be purchased to supplement food donations.

Please mail checks to
