ATLANTA -- Friday, Dec. 2 will mark 11Alive's annual Can-a-thon food collection for families in need.
Bring a donation of canned goods to one of five locations throughout Metro Atlanta. While you're there, meet and mingle with your neighbors and your favorite 11Alive anchors and reporters.
Pop-top cans are preferable, as they are easier to open for people who don't own typical kitchen utensils. Canned meats, fruits and green vegetables will be warmly welcomed.
Those who bring a minimum of 111 cans of food can enter for a chance to win two round-trip tickets from AirTran Airways. More information and the opportunity to register will be available during the event. Individuals and businesses are encouraged to participate.
Can-a-thon locations include:
* Gold Lot, Hank Aaron Drive -- 5 a.m. to 1 p.m.
* The School Box-Town Center, 50 East Barrett Parkway, Kennesaw -- 5 a.m. to 1 p.m.
