(WXYZ) — In Thursday's 7 UpFront segment, we're highlighting a much-needed boost that just arrived at a Lighthouse warehouse in Waterford.
A semitruck filled with two pallets of food was dropped off at the facility, which has spent nearly two years handing out food to people in need. The constant need had left the shelves sparse.
All told, the $200,000 donation came all the way from Utah and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Joining us to talk about it is Russ Russell, the chief development officer at Lighthouse.

"What this does is really provide the kind of meal that a family deserves to have, where they have all their vegetables and meats and potatoes and all those kind of things. Instead of just the meat or just the vegetables, they get it all and it just changes the whole dynamic for them being able to provide for their family," Russell said.
