The 16th Annual Tanksgiving Food Drive Has Begun!
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 event has evolved throughout the year but the one thing that has remained steadfast is the generousity of our listeners and the people of central Maine. Another thing that hasn't changed is that 100 percent of the food and money that we collect stays right here in central Maine, helping your friends and neighbors.
Here's where we will be for this years Tanksgiving:
