WMMR 93.3 Preston and Steve's Camp out for hunger needs our help!
*Update* If you would like to wear a Halloween costume, there will be prizes for the best costume!
Now more than ever the local food banks need help due to the pandemic. We have been invited to join the annual Phil-a-Trunk Food Drive that benefits the Philabundance Food Bank. This event is in conjunction with the Preston and Steve's Camp out for Hunger. Phil-a-Trunk is a literal food drive created by Riesentoter Region of the Porsche Club that welcomes all car clubs in the Delaware Valley.
Every donation counts!
- A one-pound donations helps provide one meal for someone in need.
- Just $1 can help provide up to two meals.
- With $20, Philabundance can buy a case of peanut butter, a delicious and crucial source of protein for kids.
- $50 helps give a four-person household three meals a day for one week.
Last year was our second time attending this event and we donated 1232 lbs of non-perishable food which was more than the 688 lbs we donated in 2019. Let's beat our 2019 and 2020 year totals combined; our goal for 2021 is 2000 lbs.!
In our first year we attended, we even got a shout out on the Preston and Steve morning radio show by the host of the event, "we didn't even hear the DVTO club drive in!"
Here are a few of our "competitor's" donation totals from 2020...
