The Charleston Ronald McDonald House receives a large food donation.
The West Virginia Farm Bureau is celebrating “Food Check-out Week” by donating to the Ronald McDonald House.
Volunteers went shopping at the Kanawha City Kroger to purchase enough food to feed families staying at the house for an entire year.
Families use the facility as a home-away-from-home while their children are receiving treatment at local hospitals.
"It's tremendous, it really is. It makes you feel like you're doing something now we may never see these people but that's perfectly alright because we know that they're benefiting from the things that we do," said WV Farm Bureau Women’s Committee Chair JoEllen Blair.
The farm bureau bought a total of $7000 worth of food and gift cards Friday.
