Last week, 96.5 TIC and We Are The Children teamed up with Foodshare to feed families in need in Connecticut this holiday season.
Each weekday last week, 96.5 TIC hosted a donation drive at a different area in the greater Hartford area, encouraging listeners to donate to Foodshare’s Turkey and Thirty program… and We Are The Children generously matched all donations collected last week!
The final tally was $15,000 in donations last week to Foodshare… and that means We Are The Children proudly presented a check for $15,000 to Foodshare this morning during Craig and Company, which you can see in the photo above!
Even if you missed last week’s Turkey and Thirty drives, you can still help! Call 860-286-9999 to donate anytime or visit www.foodshare.org for a complete schedule!
In 2013, Foodshare distributed nearly 12 million meals worth of food to pantries, community kitchens, homeless shelters, and other programs. In 2013, Foodshare involved thousands of people to provide traditional Thanksgiving meals for 20,000 households in poverty, plus food for hungry neighbors year-round.
Foodshare has less than two weeks to collect 19,896 turkeys! In addition to providing turkeys, Foodshare must also raise $900,000 to continue feeding people year-round.
