KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Knoxville-based handbag producer wants to help a local food bank with its new giveaway. Maggie Bags announced it will donate $1 to Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee for every entry into its Seatbelt Handbag Giveaway, up to $2,000.

“Maggie Bags™ has very generous customers and fans so we found a creative way to get them involved.,” says Kerri Karel, Senior Director of Marketing of Maggie Bags™. “The Cicily Tote, one of our most popular bags this Holiday Season and is sold out in Dark Red. We held one back to offer as the prize for this giveaway with a purpose.”

The announcement came after Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank Elaine Serno told the company cash donations are critical to its operations.

“Every city has those who are in need and Knoxville is not different. We want to help people in our own community this Christmas.
