St. Louis (KSDK) - These are the types of things that warm your heart.
Earlier this week we told you about an email from the Carondelet Community Betterment Federation.
The number of folks turning to them for food help shot up more than 50 percent in the last few months.
When we showed up this week, the shelves were bare.
So we asked for your help.
Sister Mary Ann Nestel says she has been thrilled with the generosity. She says people who can barely afford to give have donated food.
Someone else showed up with a $1,500 check.
We even took up a collection in the newsroom.
That's going to help them get through the next several weeks but of course they could always use more help.
Food and donations can be dropped off at the CCBF located at Michigan Ave. and Holly Hills in south city.
