NORTH CONWAY, NH – The 18th Annual Mt. Washington Radio Food Drive for Vaughan Community Services was a HUGE success!

On Wednesday, the Mount Washington Radio team broadcasted live from the First Church of Christ Congregational in North Conway Village for 12 straight hours. From 6am to 6pm, The DJs and staff from 93.5 WMWV, Magic 104, and Easy 95.3 collected frozen turkeys, non-perishable food items, and monetary donations that will be distributed across the various Mount Washington Valley Food Pantries.

Mount Washington Valley residents came out in droves to help those in need in the valley with some highlights like Stan Szetela donating 100 turkeys, Buzz Coleman donating 25 Turkey Dinners, Pine Tree Elementary School donating 1,423 non-perishable food items, The White Mountain Independents donating $1000, and Johnson’s Autocare donating over $3000.

Volunteers collected 350 frozen turkeys which is the exact number that Vaughan Community Services needed to meet their goal.

Mount Washington Valley residents also donated over $11,000 in monetary donations and hundreds of pounds of non-perishable food items. For every 1 dollar donated Vaughan can buy $3 worth of groceries from the NH Food bank.
