DRAPER -- Employees at Overstock.com came together for one big holiday donation. They collected more than 11,000 pounds of food and $15,000 in cash all for the Utah Food Bank.

Overstock participates each year in fundraising, but this year they shattered all of their previous records.

Employees got off to a slow start this time around but picked up speed after several people stepped up and offered to shave their heads if they could reach $5,000. Well, 24 hours later they had surpassed that goal.

Overstock has 1,500 employees in four locations statewide.
