Dubuque Fighting Saints help donate 600 pounds of food

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Dubuque Fighting Saints and CenturyLink held a "Hunger Games" canned food drive last month that netted more than 600 pounds of food.

The donated food will go to the Dubuque Food Pantry, along with a $500 donation from CenturyLink.

“We're pleased to have partnered with the Dubuque Fighting Saints to support the canned food drive and the Dubuque Food Pantry,” said Tim White, CenturyLink vice president of operations for Iowa, Kansas and Missouri in a press release.

“We hope this event will raise not only donations, but awareness of this issue here in Dubuque.”

This is the third year the two have teamed up. They've collected more than 1,700 pounds of food in that time.
