Lines of vehicles wrapped around Nations Ford Elementary School Tuesday afternoon to take part in the holiday food drive. Anderson said the food drive was his way of giving back to a community that has embraced him.

“I was overwhelmed when I pulled in,” Anderson told Channel 9. “I saw a bunch of cars and had a hard time getting in, so it’s kind of exciting for me.”

He said he could hardly believe how many people showed up.

“And I feel like I’ve done my job,” Anderson said. “It feels great to know that this many people will be helped today.”
