A tractor trailer full of donations arrived in Sanford Monday afternoon.

Sanford, NC -- Not one but four tractor trailers rolled out of Lowes Foods with your heart-felt donations Monday.

But we didn't stop there, we followed the giving trail.

A tractor trailer arrived in Sanford Monday afternoon.

 Your food donations are making a difference at Christian Faith Ministries. The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina is accepting the food donated to the Food 2 Families Tornado Relief Drive at Lowes Foods. The Food Bank sent 47,000 pounds of food to Christian Faith Ministries to distribute to tornado victims in the Sanford area. 

The church is operating out of a temporary warehouse location because their building also took a hit from the tornado. 

Their church steeple is on the ground and holes are in their sanctuary.  Their damage is estimated at more than $100,000 said Senior Pastor, Donald Kivett.

Kivett said they couldn't stop just because they are a storm victim themselves, and food from the Triad is helping them get back up and running.

"Because it will really help a lot of people. Lots of need and we'll do everything on our end to try to help and we appreciate them," Kivett said. 

They plan to start handing out the food Tuesday morning at 9:30.

If you know of someone in the Sanford area in need of food, the church's temporary location is at 2611 Lee Avenue in Sanford.
