How You Can Help Hillside Food Outreach With Camping for Cans
A lot is different this year, but one thing that hasn't changed is the good work Hillside Food Outreach does.
Not only are they still delivering food to those in need in Westchester and Putnam counties who cannot access local food pantries, but they also are making these important deliveries to those quarantined or isolated because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Overall, they touch more than 2,000 families a week.
As usual, we're here to help with Camping for Cans, but the program is a little different this year. You can drop off non-perishable food at a contact free, drive-thru collection station in the BJ's parking lot at 106 Federal Road in Brookfield. (Friendly reminder: Turkeys are perishable and we cannot accept them as donations, as much as we appreciate everyone's desire to help.) The collection station will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20 and Saturday, Nov. 21, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22.
In addition, you can make monetary donations via the KICKS 101.5 and the i95 ROCK apps.
To make it a little more fun, The Ethan and Lou Show will broadcast live outside the studio, at a secret remote location Friday morning and then will do the rest of their weekend schedule from the I-95 studio. Listen for special guests Christine O'Leary and Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton.
Over at KICKS 101.5, Bill Trotta will be checking in throughout the weekend with the superstars over at Hillside Food Outreach.
Be sure to tune in for these special broadcasts and please stop by BJ's over the weekend to help Hillside help the less fortunate in our area. All our donations, together, hopefully will stock them up for the holiday season and the beginning of 2021. And who isn't excited to start a new year with bright prospects and a full heart?
