Wausau, Wis. (WAOW) -- A Wausau East teacher is hosting his 4th annual turkey drive with the help of the school and community.

Teacher Rob Hughes continues his mission to help others. As a child, he says strangers helped his family in time of need. Now as an adult, Hughes wants to continue the giving to the next generation.

"We just need some compassion and we need something to feel good about and this project," Hughes said. "By donating to the Wausau school foundation and writing in the memo line, "turkey drive" -- were going to be able to feed a lot of families in our community."

Last year he raised over 7,000 dollars, feeding more than 700 families.

There are two ways people can donate, by visiting Wausau School Foundation and writing “Food for Hope” or “Turkey Drive” in the memo line or by making a donation to Zoro’s Locker at Wausau East High School.

You can mail a check or drop it off at the high school: Wausau East High School - Zoro’s Locker 2607 North 18th Street Wausau, WI 54403
