NORTH CONWAY, NH – The 17th annual Mount Washington Radio Food Drive is one for the record books.

Tuesday the Mount Washington Radio team broadcasted live at the First church of Christ Congregational for 12 hours straight. From 6am till 6pm  Dj’s and staff from 93.5  FM WMWV, Magic 10.45 FM/98.1 FM, and Easy 95.3 FM as they collect frozen turkeys and non-perishable food items to be distributed across the various Mount Washington Valley Food Pantries.

Mount Washington Valley residents have come out in droves to help those in need in the valley with Buzz Coleman donating 70 turkeys, Stan Szetela donating 80, Infinger Insurance donating 100 turkeys, and Joe Downs dropping off a whopping 102 frozen turkeys!
