Local musicians and their lyrical Christmas creations brought more than good cheer to Idaho last year.
In December, we told you about a special musical collection aimed at raising money for The Idaho Foodbank. Now, we know  just how much the album raised.

The fourth IdaHo Ho Ho Christmas CD raised enough cash to pay for 23,465 meals for those in need.

The annual fundraiser groups Idaho musicians, Moxie Java, and The Idaho Foodbank. Musicians donate their time and talent while Moxie Java bankrolls the CD. Proceeds from the album raised $7,821 for the Foodbank.

Over the past four years, the IdaHo Ho Ho album has raised enough cash to provide 96,000 meals for hungry Idahoans.
