Hungerthon 2015 on 105.9 KGBX

Friday, Sep. 11 — Monday, Sep. 14

Ozarks Food Harvest and iHeartMedia 105.9 KGBX will kick off the 17th annual Hungerthon radio-thon Friday morning in hopes of raising $130,000 for The Food Bank’s Weekend Backpack Program, which provides food insecure children with a backpack full of nutritious, child-friendly food items to take home over the weekends.

Kevin Howard and Liz Delany of 105.9 KGBX will host the four-day, community-wide event for nearly 30 hours, during Hunger Action Month — Friday, Sept. 11 through Monday, Sept. 14 — asking listeners to help sponsor Weekend Backpacks. Listeners can also tune in online at kgbx.com or on smartphones and tablets by downloading the iHeartRadio app.

• Saturday: 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

Listeners can call 417-577-7955 or toll free 800-757-9550 to make a pledge, or donate at the event outside iHeartMedia, located at the Historic Tower Theater near Glenstone and Sunshine in Springfield. For a donation of $300, or $25 monthly, a child will receive two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two snacks, drinks and hygiene items every single weekend of an entire school year. Donors can also sponsor a child for a semester at $150, or 12.50 monthly.
