TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

For 17 years, KOLD News 13 and Wells Fargo have partnered to “Stuff The Stagecoach,” an initiative that raises food and money for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona. 

On Thursday, Dec. 1, the community brought donations to help stuff the stagecoach. 

Thursday's event brought in $14,552 and 3,590 pounds of food.

The need is still there though and the Community Food Bank can always use the following items:

Peanut Butter

  • Cereal
  • Canned Tomato Products
  • Canned Meat
  • Canned Soups
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Canned Fruit
  • Beans

Last year, the community donated $10,176 and 2,862 pounds of food, which works out to 20,646 total meals distributed.
