TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Catholic Charities of Terre Haute received a large donation Friday that will help feed local families.
Local McDonald’s owners/operators donated more than 6,500 pounds of frozen chicken and more than 11,000 blueberry muffin toppers.
The donation arrived in a McDonald’s truck from Martin Brower Distribution, which houses all ingredients for local McDonald’s restaurants.
“When we spoke to Catholic Charities about giving this amount of food they were super excited knowing it’s going to a good cause and we know that the cases are up for the families that are struggling right now for food sources, so we know it’s going to be put to really good use,” says Jami Kasprzyk, a local McDonald’s owner/operator.
Catholic Charities of Terre Haute partners with 86 local agencies to help people in seven counties throughout the Wabash Valley.
