"Every bit of food helps," said Guy Hamilton, Chattanooga Area Food Bank.

Guy Hamilton oversees the Dalton branch of the chattanooga area food bank.

He says every can collected and every dollar donated during share your christmas, goes a long way.

"Our buying power is so much more substantial through this. One dollar provides four meals," said Hamilton.

Throughout the day, the community showed its compassion...with one motivation in mind:

""To help other people," said Mary Curtis, Dalton.

One of the largest donations of they day? 1, 200 pounds of food coming from the radiology tech department at Dalton State. 

"It's just helping out the community that we're a part of," said Austin Wooten, Sophomore.

Sophomore Austin Wooten says it warms his heart to help others. 

"A lot of us are college students so we know what it's like not to have a lot of money. So it's nice to give back to those who don't have a lot," said Wooten.

And for that, the Food Bank says "Thank you very much".
