Your Hometown Radio Stations – 93.1 KMKT, 97.5 KLAK and Mad Rock 102.5 – are excited to bring you our 20th Annual Bob Skaggs Memorial Food Drive – presented by Tyson Foods, Serenity Best Home Health & Lankford Roofing – Monday, November 21st through Wednesday, November 23rd!
This year marks a HUGE milestone as we celebrate 20 years of helping local families have enough to eat through the Salvation Army of Grayson County’s food pantry. What started as a small KLAK and KMKT event (that barely filled up a tiny trailer with food) in 1997, has grown into the largest food drive (benefiting the Salvation Army) in the entire state of Texas! But, all that credit goes to YOU!
Last year, in 2015, your donations filled up 6 U-Haul trucks, an ambulance and a Salvation Army truck full of non-perishable food items and other supplies for local families. We’re talking nearly 100,000 items! Amazing, right?!?!
Well, in 2016, as we celebrate 20 years of helping local families, we hope to break last year’s record. Not only that, but our goal is to DOUBLE last year’s donations and hand over at least 200,000 items to the Salvation Army this year. We know, with your help, we can accomplish this monster goal! 20 years – 200,000 items! Just has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?!?!
So, get with your family, neighbors & co-workers now and start collecting your canned goods, other non-perishable items & cash donations. That way you can bring them all to us as we broadcast LIVE from the Wal-Mart Super Center in Sherman (Hwys 75 & 82) for the two & a half days before Thanksgiving. We’re even EXTENDING our hours this year to give you more time to bring your donations to us. We’ll accept your donations from 6am-8pm on Monday, November 21st & Tuesday, November 22nd and from 6am-Noon on Wednesday, November 23rd.
