Bed donated to ABC7's Give Where You Live winner

Saturday, December 21, 2013

ABC7 News' Give Where You Live campaign keeps on giving.

On Thursday night we introduced you to Jander Yat, winner of our Give Where You Live campaign which raised $75,000 for local food banks. Viewers who pledged to help also got a chance to win $7,000.

Yat has his 8-year-old son Tyler to thank for winning that money.

"I was checking Facebook and I saw this contest and I was thinking that my dad should enter, so we could get new stuff," said Tyler.

Yat said he would use part of the $7,000 to buy a bed for his young son.

A viewer saw the story and was so moved that he donated a bed so that Jander could buy gifts for his family instead.

And you can still give where you live. Here are a list of Bay Area food banks that could use your help.
