LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A local food bank received a generous donation from a Lake Hallie business Monday.
DaVita Dialysis presented a check for $1,000 to the Feed My People Food Bank Monday morning in Eau Claire.
The company says the corporate office gave each of their dialysis centers the money to donate to the charity of their choice, and they chose Feed My People.
DaVita facility administrator Britt Jaenke told us why they went with the food bank.
She says, "It's this time of year. We know that there's a lot of hungry people out there and those kids, and we thought that this would be a really good one (non-profit to give to) this time of year."
Feed My People is the only food bank in west central Wisconsin, providing food to more than 100 hunger-relief organizations in 14 area counties.
