  • The Great American Milk Drive- Holiday Video

    Dec 11, 2014

    The Great American Milk Drive, from now until the end of the year, are asking you to help keep the momentum going and join in sharing The Great American Milk Drive holiday video, which celebrates the spirit of the season and our wish to help address the need for nutrient-rich milk during the holiday season – a time when hunger is felt even more intensely.

    For each share of the holiday video via social media through the end of the year, The Great American Milk Drive will donate one gallon of milk to Feeding America® food banks.

    You are encouraged you to share this with your networks, friends and family to help spread the warmth of the holidays and help fill food banks across the country with highly-desired, nutritious milk.

    To share, simply watch the video on MilkLife.com/give/holiday and click the social media icons below to post.

    As a reminder, this season The Great American Milk Drive will also match all donations made at MilkLife.com/give, making milk gallons multiply at your local food bank. By entering your zip code, you can ensure that milk is delivered to a local food bank to help nourish children in your community. While the holidays come around once a year, for 1 in 5 children, hunger is every day.
