Help Now: Gleaners Hope-a-Thon

RTV6 is teaming with Gleaners on Thursday for a Hope-a-Thon aimed at raising money to help keep Hoosiers from going hungry.

We are running a phone bank from 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. to accept donations. Give us a call at 317-616-9006. You can also donate at http://www.gleaners.org/hungeraction.

Of the 260,000 people in a 21-county area of central and southeastern Indiana who get food assistance through Gleaners, 97,000 are children and 31,000 are seniors, Gleaners said.

The need is great. More than half of the households served by Gleaners through 250 charitable hunger relief agencies report annual income of $10,000 or lower and 70 percent live at or below 100 percent of the poverty level.

RTV6 is featuring stories and live segments through the day detailing the need and what you can do to help.
