The eighth annual Make a Difference Day food drive is underway in Mansfield. And it's off to a great start, as donations pour in at Graham Auto Mall on West Fourth Street. Organizer Doc Stumbo says they're looking for all types of food and household and personal hygiene items. You can also take them to the three Mansfield Kroger stores; on Park Avenue West, Lexington Avenue, and Ashland Road. The items will be given to the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, Domestic Violence Shelter, Harmony House, Clear Fork Nutrition Center, and Volunteers of America. As MIX-106 morning show co-host Tony Mitchell did broadcasts, and his partner Chelley Kemper helped load food, a special guest who's quite familiar with Mansfield, stopped by for an hour. Miss Ohio Heather Wells says she's happy to help in any way she can, especially if her presence attracts attention and donations. The food drive runs through five o'clock Friday afternoon, and from eight to five Saturday. Make a Difference Day was created by the actor Paul Newman, as a way of encouraging communities across the country to help their neighbors in need.
