Monday is Double Your Donation Day at Second Harvest Food Bank in Blount County. For every dollar you donate, it's matched up to $100,000.

Second Harvest serves 18 East Tennessee counties, and it gets more than 150,000 requests for food each month.

The money raised from Monday's fundraiser will help the food bank fund eight different programs.

"We have a very aggressive backpack program. We feed 10,210 children in 223 schools. That's an expensive program, $1 million a year. That's just one of the programs that we're raising money for today," said Elaine Streno.

Second Harvest's fundraising goal is more than $200,000.

If you would like to donate, you can visit their website or call (865) 243-8227.
