WCQR’s Project Thanksgiving a Success!
Check Presentation to be Held on November 25th
GRAY, TN – 88.3 WCQR FM Radio is proud to announce that once again Project Thanksgiving was a great success! For seven years, WCQR has teamed up with Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee to ask WCQR listeners to help feed thousands of hungry families throughout Northeast Tennessee a Thanksgiving meal and provide them with a copy of God’s Word. This year’s goal was to give assistance to 6,500 families. At this date, WCQR listeners have raised over $158,690 in order to provide a Thanksgiving box to 6,068 families in our area.
On November 13th, WCQR held an all day on air fundraiser asking their listeners as well as area businesses, schools and churches to sponsor the boxes of food that will feed an entire Thanksgiving meal to a needy family in our area. A donation of $25 provided a Thanksgiving feast for a family in need. Turkey with all the trimmings…beans, corn, potatoes and gravy, Macaroni and cheese, rolls, dessert and more. WCQR also included a bible in each box.
Donations are still being accepted online at www.wcqr.org or at www.netfoodbank.org or by calling at (423) 279-0430. This charity initiative has the potential of impacting over 26,000 hungry people in our community.
A check presentation will be made next Tuesday, November 25th at 12:50 PM at Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee, 1020 Jericho Drive in Kingsport. To schedule an interview, contact Kathy Smith or Hannah Ayers using the contact information above.
