WOW! You helped us raise more than $195,000 for our child hunger programs AND collect more than 10,000 pounds of food during our annual WRAL/Mix 101.5 WRAL-FM #BackPackBuddies Mediathon on July 19th.
MIX listeners once again rallied around the belief that 'No Child Should Be Hungry' and produced some BIG RESULTS - enough to feed 162 kids every weekend!
Thanks to generous donors & hardworking volunteers, #HungerFreeNC MEDIAthon raised $80,000 for the 6 innovative organizations of the HungerFreeNC Coalition.
The discussion that started in 1989 is growing into a true movement, with MEDIAthon providing a change-making opportunity to act in partnership with others.
9-year-old William and over 150 volunteers collected 9,000 pounds of food and $10,000 in his 3rd annual Weekend for BackPack Buddies.
$120,110 is a lot to raise in one evening. But the Taste of Hope committee accomplished just that in 2015.
