Holiday Food Drive Begins Saturday in Somers Point
This year’s first collection in Lite Rock’s annual Holiday Food Drive is this Saturday, November 2nd, from 11a-1p at ShopRite in Somers Point.
When you donate this Saturday, you can enter to win tickets to see Bon Jovi live at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Tuesday, November 5th!
The Holiday Food drive benefits the Community Food Bank of New Jersey Southern Branch in Egg Harbor Township.
Each year the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and their partners feed 900,000 hungry people. With the help of so many caring individuals, corporations, foundations, houses of worship, schools and community groups, they have distributed almost 500 million pounds of food valued at roughly one billion dollars.
For many years during the holiday season, Lite Rock 96/9 WFPG has been involved in helping. Each November we call on the generosity of our listeners to donate the food stuffs needed to keep the pantries at the Food Bank open and the families who rely on this food nourished.
It is that time again! Won’t you please help us with the Lite Rock Holiday Food Drive? Here’s how to help. Once again, Lite Rock will be visiting South Jersey ShopRites each Saturday leading up to Thanksgiving.
Each Saturday, we’ll be trying to fill the truck from our sponsor Gentilini Motors in Woodbine with donated food. Gentilini Motors, with the two top American Brands – Ford and Chevrolet ,”same great South Jersey Family, and still just a short drive from anywhere”!
The Community Food Bank of New Jersey Southern Branch is making a special appeal this year for canned soups, meals in a can, peanut butter and jelly, canned tuna and other meats, and cereal.
