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.
