It’s the season for giving and Green B.E.A.N. Delivery and WCBE-FM (90.5) are running their Second Annual Food Drive to benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. For every monetary pledge made to WCBE-FM from Nov. 21-Dec. 31, 2011, Green B.E.A.N. Delivery will donate two pounds of food to help the less fortunate members of the local community.
Even better, until December 26, 2011, Green B.E.A.N. Delivery will increase its donation to four pounds of food for each pledge made! This incredibly generous donation could really make a difference in the lives of people in our community during the holiday season and throughout the winter when heating costs rise and fresh produce becomes more expensive.
If you have any room in your budget to give a little extra this year, please consider donating any amount that you can afford to help stop hunger in Central Ohio. More than 248,000 individuals, including 86,975 children and 17,395 seniors, receive emergency food each year through Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Click here to go directly to the WCBE-FM donation page.
