Westlund's Apple Market and Liquid Web are teaming with the Greater Lansing Food Bank for the Fill-the-Truck campaign.

The Lansing-based web hosting company was at Westlund's Apple Market Wednesday giving people an opportunity to donate during peak holiday grocery shopping time.

Shoppers were able to fill the truck with additional items in front of Westlund's Apple Market before delivering donations to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.

"This is the time of the year that places like the food bank are in great need of extra materials. We've gotten together over 3,000 dollars of estimated retail items and we're hoping to... hopefully double that today," said Cale Sauter of Liquid Web.

We don't have a final count yet, but they tell us they did reach their goal of doubling their donations Wednesday.
