Holiday Food Drive Collects Money and Items for Food Pantry
According to a written release from WMRC, the drive was held for four hours each on Dec. 17 and Dec. 18 at the newly-renovated Dunkin Donuts on Main Street.
"We were amazed by the generosity of the WMRC community that came together to help their neighbors in need," WMRC's President Tom McAuliffe said in the statement.
"It was a fantastic two days and really defined the spirit of the season," added WMRC's Ray Auger. "We thank you all."
WMRC broadcasted from the food drive, according to the release, which included an appearance by Santa Claus, the WMRC staff collecting money and food, and three WMRC shows live on location: Living For The Weekend (Fridays at 9:00am), The YMCA's The Snooze Button (Saturdays at 9:00am) and The Sports Buzz (Saturdays at 10:00am).
