It is that time of the year again! Won't you please help us with the Lite Rock Holiday Food Drive? Every weekend leading up to Thanksgiving we will be at a different South Jersey ShopRite collecting food for the hungry in South Jersey. 

Each year the Community Food Bank of New Jersey Southern Branch and their partners feed over 900,000 hungry people.

For many years during the holiday season, Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG has been involved in helping. Each November we call on the kindness of our listeners to donate the food items needed to keep the pantries at the Food Bank open.

When you donate we will put you in the running for tickets to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Winter Tour 2018 or the Jim Brickman Holiday Show at Ocean Resort Casino.

Check out the upcoming stops below to drop by with food or a monetary donation for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey Southern Branch.
