WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - More than 15 percent of our local population are at risk of hunger and includes more than 15,000 chidlren.

In an effort to fight hunger, Rex & Sons RVs is hosting a "1/2 Way to Thanksgiving" food drive.

Rex & Sons is challenging residents to bring 5 extra can goods to 1546 S. College Road throughout May.  Help the company fill a motor home with can goods and non-perishable foods that will be donated to the Local Good Shepherd Center in Wilmington.

"There is always somebody in worst shape than yourself," said Travis Creech of Rex & Sons.  "If you can just help a little bit - bring five cans and fill up this mobile home.  It will fill up some bellies and warm up some hearts."

The final day of the food drive will be May 21.
