Southwest collected over 2,817 items, which totaled 1,839 pounds.This is what was recorded, though there were several classes that didnÕt turn in their numbers.ÊThe total was estimated at over 3,000 items and 2,000 pounds of food collected. Linda ApplegateÕs advisory helped consolidate food in boxes and then helped carry 79 boxes out to the truck.
