Now in it’s eleventh year, the Mount Washington Radio/Vaughn Community Services Annual Food Drive showcases what living in the Mount Washington Valley is all about - community goodwill and service. Held at the First Church of Christ in North Conway (across from Assets Jean Co.), this one-day, 12-hour event helps collect food for area food pantries benefiting those in need during the holiday season, as well as throughout the year. Many different pantries in the Greater Mount Washington Valley will see donations from the drive helping those less fortunate in their communities.
How can you get involved? It’s easy! Just swing by the First Church of Christ (2503 White Mountain Highway) with a non-perishable item anytime from 6am-6pm…you don’t even need to get out of your car! Canned foods, spaghetti sauces, pasta, mac n’ cheese, peanut butter, muffin and cake mixes, crackers…these are just a few ideas and all will be accepted to go to a good cause. Household items are always welcomed too including toilet paper, paper towels and toothpaste. AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE FROZEN TURKEYS! Each and every year the Valley continues to step up breaking the previous year’s mark… 442 turkeys were collected in 2011, so lets get to 500 for 2012!
As always, 93.5 WMWV will be live, on location broadcasting the entire day with a ton of help from our hourly sponsors. A very special “Thank You” to those area businesses (below) for helping us make this event possible again this year!
