 Children’s Hunger Radiothon benefiting Gleaners Community Food Bank 

 

104.3 WOMC will be broadcasting live from the Gleaners Detroit Distribution Warehouse, asking listeners to donate and help Gleaners continue its wide-reaching School Food Mobile Pantry program.

 

All donors who pledge an annual commitment of $20/month or a one-time gift of $240+ will become a Hunger Hero and receive an official Children’s Hunger Radiothon insulated tote bag courtesy of Milk Means More.

 

Throughout the Children’s Hunger Radiothon supporters at the Hunger Hero level will have an opportunity to win hourly prizes. A special meet-and-greet with Pistons Legend Earl Cureton from 4-5pm at the Kroger in Royal Oak gives shoppers a chance to win one of three prizes:

 

  • $500 Kroger shopping spree
  • Autographed Andre Drummond jersey
  • Autographed Andre Drummond basketball

 

During the Radiothon, $1 = 6 meals for a hungry child thanks to Kroger, the Match Partner.
