Senator McGuire promotes high school food drives

MCKINLEYVILLE – Over the holidays, Food for People is hosting their 25th annual holiday spirit food drive, and this year Senator Mike McGuire is challenging local high schools to compete to collect the most food.

Today McKinleyville High School kicked of their fundraiser with a pep rally. Last year the schools raised a total about 3,000 pounds and McGuire is challenging them to double that this year.

Food for people says they collect about half of their total donations over the holiday season.
