Across Alabama, families are facing tough questions about how they’ll pay bills, buy groceries and stay afloat during this unprecedented crisis. The WKRG Virtual Food & Supply Drive with the Salvation Army, is encouraging all of us to help our neighbors by donating money so The Salvation Army can provide much-needed canned food, dry goods, hygiene items, paper products, water, baby formula and diapers and wipes to families in need.
