WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Volunteers collected food for area pantries at grocery stores today.

Organizers for Peyton's Promise said more than 50 volunteers, including area children and cub scouts, helped take donations from shoppers for this year's Elves Stock the Shelves event.

Volunteers said it's all about taking care of those in need this holiday season.

"We sometimes take what we have for granted and we shouldn't be doing that because there's other people who don't have that and it's just good to help," said Kenzie Medick.

Organizers said they've raised about twelve tons of food, they said that's enough to fill shelves in five pantries.
