6am - 6pm

 97.7 HTZ-FM together with Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold would like to THANK YOU for your generosity!  Together, we raised $242,000 in food and cash donations!

Friday December 7th, was an extremely special day that the true holiday spirit shined brightly upon the front lawn of our Radio Stations with the 8th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive.

From 6am – 6pm tomorrow, we broadcasted live outside our radio station (12 Yates Street, St. Catharines) on the Front Lawn with the goal to stuff the St. Catharines Transit bus with non-perishable food items ... YOU did that and more!!

If you weren’t able to make it down today, you can still donate to help make a difference this holiday season by donating online or making a donation at Community Care of St. Catharines & Thorold.


Community Care is distributing approximately 4,000 pounds are being distributed per day, 5 days a week in St. Catharines & Thorold! Sadly, over and above this number, it’s expected that over 3,000 registered families will need assistance this Holiday season.

You generosity will help many families in our community, filling tummies, ensuring warm beds and shelter and enjoy a Christmas dinner with presents under the tree!

THANK YOU once again from the many families you have helped, all of the staff & volunteers from Community Care of St. Catharines & Thorold, and your friends at  97.7 HTZ-FM!

Special thanks to: St. Catharines Transit, The Niagara Regional Police, Special Occasion Tent Rental from Smithville, Hertz Equipment Rental, Starbucks Coffee, and the Niagara IceDogs.
