Xerox is working to fight hunger this holiday season. It's all part of the 33rd annual Operation Food Basket Campaign.

Volunteers spent the morning filling baskets for local families. The company is hoping to provide more than 61,000 pounds of food to those in need.

That food will feed about 2,500 people in the Rochester area.

Bernadette Durman said, "Well, they're families who would welcome a little extra holiday spirit."

Organizers say they raised more than $40,000 towards food items for the event. Hundreds of volunteers will be delivering the food baskets to families Thursday afternoon.
