V 100 FM TO HOST FOOD DRIVE FOR THE SALVATION ARMY SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17
(November 14, 2012) V 100 FM as part of their on-going community
support will host a food drive to benefit Salvation Army Milwaukee
County food pantries on Saturday, November 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00
p.m. at the Sentry Food Store, 7101 W. Lisbon Ave.
Salvation Army food pantries serve an average of 25,000 individuals annually. Since January 2012 request for first time assistance has continued to increase 10%. Several times throughout the year Salvation Army food pantries have been bare.
“We appreciate the partnership with V 100 and the annual food drive they host during the holiday season. It helps to replenish our food pantries during Thanksgiving and Christmas and reminds the public of the year round need we have for food. The need is great. We encourage corporations, businesses and civic groups to host food drives year round,” said Salvation Army Milwaukee County Commander Roger Ross.
