MILWAUKEE - Three days before a day meant for Americans to give thanks, TODAY'S TMJ4 and Associated Bank are empowering Milwaukee to help make a difference for those in our country who battle hunger.

We are hosting a "Food 4 the Holidays" phone bank beginning with "Live at Daybreak," lasting all Monday through "Live at 6," to help raise money for Feeding America of Eastern Wisconsin.

The money you give will help many among the one in six Americans who face hunger every day, and the 17 million children in our country who don't know where their next meal is coming from.

Our goal: raise enough money for 150,000 meals for the hungry.

As of 12:00 a.m., you've raised enough for 10,000 meals.

Every $20 donation leads to $100 meals.

"330,000 people rely on us every year for foor.  105,000 of them are children.  It really does make a difference," explained Kathleen Fugler of Feeding America on TODAY'S TMJ4's "Live at Noon."
