8th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive

12/6/2012

CKTB asking you to get in the holiday spirit and help families within our community Friday December 7th during the 8th annual Great Holiday Food Drive.

We'll be broadcasting live from the front lawn of 12 Yates Street in St. Catharines alongside our sister and brother stations 105.7 EZ Rock and 97.7 HTZ FM from 6am to 6pm.

The goal is to stuff a St. Catharines Transit bus with non-perishable food items.

Items that are of greatest need include:

- Holiday foods (gravy to cookies)
- Cold and hot cereal
- Peanut butter
- Canned meats, fish, stews and chili
- Canned pasta
- Canned vegetables
- Canned fruit
- Baby formula & cereal
- Diapers (particularly 4 months and up)

If you'd like to make a cash donation you can do that in person or on-line at 610cktb.com.

Cash donations help families pay utility bills, seniors cover rent or medical bills as well as medical, dental and vision care.

It's expected over 3 000 families will need help this holiday season.

Community Care distributes approximately 4 000 lbs of food per day 5 days a week in St. Catharines and Thorold.
