Hungerthon 2016 on 105.9 KGBX

Friday, Sep. 09 — Monday, Sep. 12

Ozarks Food Harvest and iHeartMedia 105.9 KGBX are kicking off the 18th annual Hungerthon radio-thon this September in the hopes of raising $125,000 for The Food Bank’s Weekend Backpack Program, which provides food insecure children with a bag full of nutritious food to take home over the weekends.

Kevin and Liz of 105.9 KGBX will host the four day radio-thon during Hunger Action Month — Sept. 9-12 — asking listeners to sponsor Weekend Backpacks. Listeners can also tune at kgbx.com or on smartphones with the iHeartRadio app.

Event Hours:

• Friday: 6 a.m.­–7 p.m.

• Saturday: 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

• Sunday: 11–2 p.m.

• Monday: 6–10 a.m.

Listeners can call toll free 800-445-1059 to make a pledge, or donate at the event outside of the Historic Tower Theater near Glenstone and Sunshine. For a donation of $300, or $25 monthly, a child will receive two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two snacks and drinks every weekend of an entire school year.
