Thanks to all who participated in last week’s Let’s Kick Hunger Day Radiothon! We raised more than $250,000 to kick hunger in Minnesota and western Wisconsin through generous donations and sponsor matches, pushing the five-year total for the event to more than $1 million. Special thanks to WCCO Radio, Taste of the NFL, Land O’Lakes, General Mills and AgStar Financial Services for their continued partnership and support.
Let’s Kick Hunger Day raises crucial funds in support of hunger relief, 100 percent of which will stay local in our community. Times are tough for many of our neighbors, and the community’s support has never been more crucial—or inspiring.
We heard many inspiring stories from those who called in, and couldn’t be more humbled by our community’s generosity:
- The senior couple from Mendota Heights who donated $100 in the morning, and after listening to the radiothon throughout the day, decided they could give a bit more and donated another $500 later in the afternoon.
- The Minneapolis cab driver who proudly donated $10 in honor of his family who once struggled with hunger.
- The single mother who couldn’t afford to contribute, but wanted to thank the Let’s Kick Hunger Day presenters, sponsors and volunteers for making a difference in our community.
- The largest donation of the day—$5,000—by a generous local company, Johnstech International.
If you missed the radiothon yesterday but still want to help kick hunger, you can still donate online here.
