INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Indiana Pacers and hundreds of volunteers packed more than 44,000 meals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse Monday in an effort to help feed the hungry, especially children.
It's part of an effort by Kids Against Hunger - a humanitarian food-aid organization whose mission is to Feed the hungry at home and abroad.
Pacer player George Hill was one familiar face that helped back meals.
"I did it last year and saw a great video on Kidsagainsthunger.com that impacted my life. It wanted me to partner with them and try to raise as much food as possible," he said.
24-Hour News 8 news anchor Lauren Lowery said in an hour, volunteers were able to pack 8,000 meals.
Half of the meals will go to Gleaners Food Bank to feed kids locally and the other half will go to kids in Haiti.
A winter storm warning is in effect for most of Central Indiana.
It's very rare that a single person can reach across national, racial, and spiritual borders to bring such hope and healing.
Dispatchers with Indiana State Police say a vehicle left the roadway Thursday night off of Interstate 69.
