“Birds and Bucks” Holiday Food Drive Set For November 22
That time of year again - where we ask for your help feeding our Casper neighbors in need - with the annual "Birds & Bucks" Holiday Food Drive, made possible this year by our friends at Taco John's. Friday, November 22 - all six of Casper's Townsquare Media radio stations (104.7 KISS-FM, Rock 96.7, My Country 95.5, 107.9 The River, K2 Radio, and AM 1400, ESPN Radio) will be live at both Casper locations of Albertson's, and Smith's on CY, from 7am until 7pm. We'll be asking for two things - frozen turkeys, to help our local food pantries and families who can use them - and cash contributions, which can be used to purchase exactly the types of foods each of our participating agencies most need to help fulfill their mission of feeding the hungry.
This year, we're working with assistance from our friends at the Wyoming Food For Thought Project to help out even more local agencies than ever before, which means the need is larger than ever this year - Joshua's Storehouse, Oasis Food Pantry, Mountain View Food Pantry, Evansville Food Pantry, Poverty Resistance, Loaves and Fishes, the Casper Salvation Army, Holy Cross Food Bank, the Central Wyoming Rescue Mission, and the Faith Assembly of God. It's a big project - and involves more than just putting a Thanksgiving meal on the table. These various agencies serve a diverse group of Casper citizens in different ways, all year long - which is where your frozen turkeys and cash - (birds and bucks) are useful.
Special thanks in advance to Albertson's East & West and Smith's for hosting us - to Taco John's, our proud sponsor getting behind this year's event, to the Wyoming Food For Thought Project for their volunteer and organizational assistance - and most of all, to YOU. For years, you've helped pay it forward around the holidays - and demonstrate every year that Casper is second to none in taking care of its own. Hope to see you on November 22!
