In what has now become a great Philadelphia tradition, WMMR radio’s morning hosts Preston & Steve will begin their Campout for Hunger drive beginning Monday, November 29th and continuing through Friday December 3rd.
If you’re not familiar with Preston & Steve’s Campout event, for those five days, they “camp” in an RV collecting non-perishable food items for Philabundance, who then distribute the food throughout the greater Delaware Valley area to those who need it. Campout and other food drives play an essential role in helping Philabundance keep up with the needs of the community.
How can you help?
Stop by the Campout for Hunger “camp” at the Metroplex in Plymouth Meeting, PA. There will be plenty of special guests during the morning show, but you can stop during the day and evening also. We are also collecting food at White Horse RV up until Wednesday, 11/24 and will send all donations along with the RV. Anyone who donates at White Horse will receive a 10% discount card for our Parts & Accessories store. Some recommended food items include the following:
- Canned Tuna
- Canned Beef Stew (pop top lid)
- Canned Chili (pop top lid)
- Canned Pasta, Beef Ravioli
- Macaroni & Cheese
- Ready to Eat Cereal (Family Size)
- Canned Pork & Beans/Baked Beans (pop top lid)
- Canned Green Beans
- Canned Corn
- Canned Fruit Cocktail (pop top lid)
- Creamy Peanut Butter (Plastic Containers Only)
- Grape Jelly (Plastic Containers Only)
- Boxed Sugar
We don’t know the exact figures since they haven’t always kept track, but we do know that over the last several years Campout for Hunger has collected close to 1,000 TONS of food, and probably more!
Please help out if you can. Even a single can or two will help. Here are the event details one more time:
Donations are accepted Monday through Thursday from 6am to about 8pm, and Friday from 6am to 10am.
