DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) — With the Covid-19 pandemic and rise of food costs, some families will struggle to put food on the table this Thanksgiving.

To help assist with that problem, Murphy Family Restaurants and the Wiregrass Area Food Bank will host the annual “Stuff the Semi food drive”.

They will be taking donations Thursday, November 18th from six in the morning til six in the evening at the McDonalds located at 3520 Ross Clark Circle.

Donors can bring any non-perishable food items, frozen turkeys or hams and monetary donations.

In 2020, the drive collected over 3400 pounds of food to go along with four thousand dollars which in turn, translated into over 44,000 meals for those in need.

If you are unable to donate at the drive, you can bring donations to any McDonalds owned by Murphy Family Restaurants, there it will be taken to the Wiregrass Area Food Bank.
