Press Communication’s WBBO-FM Atlanta radio personalities Tad and Drex lead a “Stuff the Truck” food drive on November 16 to provide Thanksgiving dinners to food-insecure families in support of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The Atlanta metro area community faces one of the highest levels of food insecurity in the nation, where one in four children go to bed at night not knowing when they’ll have their next meal. Broadcasting live, WBBO-FM was able to collect 4,800 pounds of food, including 2,792 pounds of turkey, 1,522 pounds of canned goods and 486 pounds of produce. “Our listeners are great! When we ask them to give, they always come through and help worthy causes like the Atlanta Community Food Bank,” said Chris Eagan, Director of Branding and Programming. “Giving back to the communities we serve is exactly what local radio does best.”
