It’s time to get your cans in gear!


WMMR's Preston & Steve - Campout for HungerUPDATE: White Horse RV will donate one food item for every new “Like” we get on our Facebook page! If you’re on Facebook and  haven’t already done so, please stop by. Don’t forget to share our page with friends and family too!

Once again for 2011,  WMMR radio’s morning hosts Preston & Steve will be holding their Campout for Hunger drive the week after Thanksgiving, beginning Monday, November 28th and continuing through Friday December 2nd.

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.

As we have the past several years, White Horse RV Center is more than happy to provide an RV for Preston & Steve to live in throughout the week.

How can you help?

Helping Philadelphia area kids for 30 years!


What’s your first thought when you think of “bikers”? Often portrayed in movies, TV shows and other entertainment outlets as a band of hooligans, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

A great example of this is Delaware Valley A.B.A.T.E (Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education). This  Sunday marks the 30th Annual A.B.A.T.E. toy run where bikers line the streets of Philadelphia for blocks on end, and cruise through the city to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia where they deliver new toys to the kids.

Delaware Valley A.B.A.T.E.

This year, as has been the case for the last several, current A.B.A.T.E member Mark Schultz will be living in an RV,  donated by White Horse RV Center, for the weekend collecting toys from those who aren’t riding. Sunday’s festivities are hosted by Philadelphia radio legend, WMMR’s Pierre Robert, until 12 noon when the bikers begin their trek to Children’s Hospital.

All motorcycles are welcome to ride! You can also just show up to donate a toy if you don’t or can’t ride. Here are the event details:

  • Toys can be dropped off at the A.B.A.T.E. RV beginning Friday, 11/5/2010 until Sunday, 11/7/2010 at 12 noon.
  • The RV will be located in close proximity to Columbus Blvd. & Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia. This is also the starting point for the toy run.
  • All toys must be new, unwrapped and have batteries included if required. No stuffed animals please, due to health reasons.
  • If you’re coming, please be advised that parts of Spring Garden, 8th Street, and the Schuylkill Expressway will be closed.

Come rain or shine!
