A major worldwide retailer is pitching in to support local food banks with a weekend food drive.
Both Rapid City Wal-Mart locations set up boxes in the stores to collect donations for local food banks.
The new store off Catron Boulevard had pretty good donations over the weekend, filling the boxes.
It's the third year the LaCrosse Street store has participated, and though they didn't plan to have numbers until Monday, managers said they typically donate between 1,000 at 1,500 pounds of food.
"It shows the community that a corporation like Wal-Mart cares about the community," said Steven Hill, assistant manager at the LaCrosse Street store. "We want to make sure that we're putting the effort out there that we're taking care of the community as well by donating these products."
And a Care and Share food drive event at the Elks Theatre this weekend brought in 365 pounds of food.
Saturday, people were able to watch The Lorax at the theatre and the price of admission was just a can of food.
