CONWAY, NH – Magic 104 FM and Hill’s RVs are camping for a cause Wednesday. Mount Washington’s favorite top 40 station and home to New Hampshire’s best morning show will be camping out at Hill’s RVs on Eastman Road in Center Conway from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. Wednesday August 22nd, to collect donations for End 68 Hours of Hunger and the North Conway Community Center’s State Line Football Program. The day will be filled with food, fun games, and raffle prizes all in order to collect as many food and monetary donations as they can to help out hungry kids in the Mount Washington Valley.
During the event Magic 104 personalities will be on site collecting donations playing some of Gino’s classic “Stupid and Silly Games” and broadcasting live. Donors will be given a raffle ticket for each item donated that they then can use to put themselves in the running for numerous prizes courtesy of Monkey Trunks, Kahuna Laguna Water Park, Wildcat Mountain, Story Land, Black Cap Grille, Ski and Snowboard Liquidation Center, and more! Donors do not have to be present to win. During the afternoon they will be firing up the grill cooking some delicious treats for all to enjoy during the event.
Hill’s RVs will also be donating a portion of all sales made the day of the event to End 68 Hours of Hunger and the North Conway Community Center’s State Line Football Program.
End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive at school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive at school on Monday morning.
This program puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend. Each bag of food costs $10 each week and provides two breakfasts, two lunches, and three dinners for a child, with some left over to share. 100% of the donations go to End 68 Hours of Hunger and stays in the Mount Washington Valley.
Every week they pack and deliver bags to local schools, including John Fuller, Conway Elementary, Pine Tree, Madison, Tamworth, Bartlett, and Conway Area Head Start. Volunteers also use the proceeds to stock the “closets” with food at Kennett Middle School and Kennett High.
Hunger doesn’t stop for bad weather and neither will we, this is a rain or shine event, and we hope to see you there.
