I started working at B98.5 on August 20, 2000 and that November we started the Tanksgiving Food Drive. It was the idea of then morning show co-host Genny Judge. It's hard to believe that we are already doing the 16th Annual Tanksgiving Food Drive!
The annual 'Tanks'Giving Food Drive is starting on November 2nd. The first 'Tanks'Giving Food Drive started in November 2000 and over the 15 years the tons of food and thousands of dollars have all stayed right here in central Maine.
Hair for the Hungry. It is done! I have lost my hair and we have raised over $5,000 for the Tanks-Giving food bank. All of this thanks to SuperCuts and everyone who has donated. It all had added up in a big way. The $5,000 will turn into about 20,000 meals...
It's hard to believe the 14th annual 'Tanksgiving' Food Drive has come to an end. What a great week we had. Thank you to everybody throughout central Maine who made a donation of non-perishable food or money.
Kennebec County Sheriff Randall Liberty stopped by the radio station Tuesday afternoon and said how can we help with 'Tanksgiving'? He offered to have vehicles and officers to join in for the rest of the week.
Our 14th annual B-98.5 'Tanksgiving' Food Drive was the most successful ever and Governor Paul LePage is proud to announce that the annual Blaine House Food Drive collected 1,728 pound of non-perishable food this year.
Another 'Tanks'giving has wrapped up, and we want to give you all a huge THANK YOU for your support of the 14th annual food drive! Thanks to your kindness and generosity, we have set a new record in both food collection and money raised for local food banks!
While at the Walmart in Augusta at the Augusta Marketplace, the Maine Army National Guard is helping out our 'Tanks'giving Food Drive. Last year, PFC Julia Morrison did a pushup for every dollar that was donated. And, even though her shoulder is hurting, she has decided to try and break the record this year.
And her fellow soldiers decided to join in!
It's Day 4 of B98.5′s 14th annual “Tanks”giving Food Drive, running through Friday (November 8th,) at the tank on top of the hill at Camp Keyes, just off Western Avenue in Augusta.
The Morning Buzz's Randy McCoy is still manning the tent up by the tank, taking all of your donations. Today, he's giving you a look at some of the food that has been collected this week!
When we go out each day with the Maine Army National Guard and stand out front of supermarkets, we treat everyone the same. We ask everyone to make a donation of non-perishable food items and/or cash for the Salvation Army and local area food banks. You never know what might happen.
Well, something incredible started off our 3rd day of 'Tanks'giving.
