Until December 15, Nextlink Abilene will be hosting a canned food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Abilene, Inc.

You can bring shelf-stable food items to Nextlink Abilene (1181 Ben Richey Dr), and all proceeds will help fight hunger directly here in Abilene and the Big Country. You can also contact them at (855) 698-5465 to schedule pickup for your food drive donations.

Nextlink is also showing their appreciation by offering FREE installation and one month of service on them when you donate to the food drive, in order to say thank you for supporting a local cause and giving back to the community.
