“The need in the community is great and we need everyone’s help. We are looking for donations of food, or a 20 dollar bill or two, or whatever someone can afford,” Good Time Oldies 1060 WRHL and 102.3 The Coyote General Manager Gary Petersen said. “For every $20 donation, a family of four will have everything they need for a great Thanksgiving meal. The last 11 years have been tremendous and we hope this year can be even better. We ask everyone to gather whatever they can, food, cash, or write a check, and drop it off at Anderson’s on Nov. 16.”
Approximately 75 people and businesses donated close to $4,000 to last year’s food drive.
The food will be distributed from Anderson Plumbing and Heating, 621 1st Ave., Rochelle, on Saturday, Nov. 18 from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m., or until all the boxes are gone.
