Hungerthon 2018 on 105.9 KGBX

Friday, Sep. 07 — Monday, Sep. 10
Outside the Historic Tower Theatre at Sunshine & Glenstone

Join us for the 20th annual Hungerthon! Ozarks Food Harvest and iHeartMedia 105.9 KGBX are kicking off the radio-thon this September to raise $135,000 for The Food Bank’s Weekend Backpack Program, which provides food-insecure children with a bag of nutritious meals and snacks to take home each weekend.

Kevin and Liz of 105.9 KGBX will host the four-day radio-thon, asking listeners to sponsor Weekend Backpacks. Listeners can also tune at or on smartphones with the iHeartRadio app.

Event hours:
Friday: 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sunday: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday: 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Listeners can call 890-KGBX (5429) to make a pledge, or they can stop by to make a donation at the event. For a donation of $300, or $25 monthly, a child will receive two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, two snacks and drinks every weekend for an entire school year.

We are so thankful for all of this year’s generous sponsors!
