For two weeks, KRGV-TV held the "Sharing Basket" food drive which collected enough meals for 2,700 families. The KRGV-TV Toy Drive also collected more than $10,000 to buy toys that were distributed to children in foster care, local hospitals and in low income communities along the Texas-Mexico border. In addition to these drives, the station is currently holding its "Timís Coats" drive to collect new and slightly worn coats. The project began in October and runs until March. So far, KRGV-TV has collected 4,000 coats and 400 hats.
