Join us for the 21st Annual Hungerthon! Ozarks Food Harvest and 105.9 KGBX are kicking off the radio-thon this September to raise $135,000 for The Food Bank’s Weekend Backpack Program, which provides food-insecure children with a bag of nutritious meals and snacks to take home each weekend. If our goal is met, 450 children will be sponsored for a full school year of the lifesaving program.
Kevin and Liz of 105.9 KGBX will host the four-day radio-thon, asking listeners to sponsor Weekend Backpacks. Listeners can also tune at kgbx.com or on smartphones with the iHeartRadio app.
During radio-thon hours, listeners can call toll-free 890-KGBX (5429) to make a pledge, or they can stop by to make a donation at the event. For a donation of $300, or $25 monthly, a child will receive two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two snacks and drinks every weekend for an entire school year.
Learn how your company can help provide meals for Weekend Backpack children and inspire others to give during Hungerthon. Contact Jennifer White at 417-890-5555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details about sponsorship opportunities.
