Thank you for your desire to help families in the 4-States.

As families struggle under the weight of devastating job losses and economic uncertainty, many are faced with food insecurity. And COVID-19 continues to magnify the struggles this Holiday Season. As a result, our local food pantries are reporting a large increase in the number of households served, many seeking assistance for the first time. The demand continues to stretch their available resources. They need our help.

To help meet the need, FOX 14 and The CW have teamed up with Westco Home Furnishings for the 17th annual Feed the 4-States Food Drive. Westco Home Furnishings is accepting non-perishable food donations at its 11 locations. Your donations will be given to a Food Pantry in each community to make certain they reach those who need it the most.

We’ve also joined with Ozarks Food Harvest, Kansas Food Bank and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to help meet the need this Holiday Season. Monetary donations can be made by clicking on one of the links. When you give to a Food Bank, each dollar donated is stretched to provide up to four healthy meals.

The funds raised by each Food Bank will support the work of helping agencies in Southeast Kansas, Southwest Missouri or Northeast Oklahoma. Our neighbors, families and friends.

When there’s a need, the 4-State area always comes together. We can do it again. 4-States together.
