The 2018 Mix 101.5 WRAL-TV #BackPackBuddies Mediathon was a huge success! We raised more than $198,000 for our child hunger programs and collected two tons of food from area Food Lions.
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.
