HOLLIDAYSBURG, BLAIR COUNTY - Area businesses  showed off the efforts of their month-long food drive on Thursday.  The Norcom Mortage office in Hollidaysburg spearheaded the effort which included four local realty companies, Coldwell Banker, RE/Max Results, Stultz Real Estate, and Howard Hanna, Johnston Realty.

They collected more than 500 pounds of food and $450 in gift cards for the American Rescue Mission Hollidaysburg, and the Altoona Food Bank. More food and cash is expected to come in.

Both the Altoona Food Bank and the American Rescue Mission say they're seeing an increase in new people who are seniors and or who are handicapped, who just can't stretch their budgets anymore.
