It’s finally here. The fourth WKVI Food Drive at Five Star – and this year, Sanders Foods as well – runs this morning from 9 a.m. until noon, live on K99.3 FM. The staff is hoping to outdo last year’s donation of 375 pounds of food for the local food pantry, and to aid in that, the food drivee features a new addition to the event as WKVI General Manager Jerry Curtis will be broadcasting live and accepting donations at Sander’s Foods in Winamac while Tom Berg and Lenny Dessauer broadcast and collect at Five Star in Knox.
Curtis said the food drive event is something WKVI is proud to do to help their community, since the radio station has always been involved in community events to help local organizations.
This is the first year Sander’s Foods has been a part of the WKVI Food Drive event, and as the local radio station for Pulaski County as well, WKVI will also be broadcasting from their location. Once the event is underway, Curtis said he anticipates making Sander’s Foods a part of the annual food drive.
The broadcast starts at 9 a.m. CT on Nov. 23 and ends at noon.
