El Paso - Pizza Hut is doing a lot more than tossing pizzas.

The company just donated $10,000 to the West Texas Food Bank.

Pizza Hut has been collecting donations for months now.

It did so by offering a free Sesame Street coloring book for ever $1 gift.

The Food Bank says every donation helps, especially now...

"People tend to donate more around Christmas and Thanksgiving but unfortunately hunger exists in our community 365 days out of the year. 1 in 4 people are hungry in El Paso County compared to 1 in 8 nationally so we have an extreme poverty problem here in our community."

The $10,000 donation will help pay for up to 60,000 meals.
