101.9 The Wave’s One For One Holiday Food Drive is Dec. 14

Our holiday tradition is back, and more important than ever!

The 101.9 The Wave/Commerce Bank One-For-One Holiday Food Drive to benefit The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri is coming up on Wednesday, December 14th!

Join us in supporting our community, giving back to those who need it the most this holiday. The Food Bank serves around 100,000 people a month and covers a 32 county service area. It distributed over 32 million pounds of food in 2020, equaling a $50 million wholesale value. The need is greater than ever and continues to grow.

From 6a-6p, we’ll be collecting donations in front of Buchheits (the former Orschlen Farm & Home) off Missouri Blvd in Jefferson City, as well as at the Columbia Mall just off Stadium.  There will also be donation locations INSIDE the Mall (between JCP and the Food Court).

The easiest and most impactful way you can give is with an online monetary donation. Not only is it contactless, but with the Food Bank’s partnerships, they can turn a $1 donation into 4 meals, $25 into 100 Meals!! A $270 donation can provide Buddy Packs to one student for a full school year.

Donate online right now by clicking the link below and The Crossing will MATCH your donation!

You can also text “FOOD” to 573-746-7004  for a quick donation link thanks to Equipment Share who will match your donation!

Or donate on Dec. 14th with the Missouri Pork Association Phone Bank: 573-447-6600
