Thanksgiving on the Mayflower Food Drive: Nov. 7-11

Meriter Medical Group, Union Transfer and WOLX are teaming up to hold the Thanksgiving on the Mayflower Food Drive.

From November 7-11, you can drop off food at the new Meriter Monona clinic (located at 6408 Copps Avenue) hoping to fill a Mayflower truck full of food. A bin will be placed next to the truck for donations from November 7-10. On Friday, November 11, 94.9 WOLX staff will be on-site from 6am-3pm collecting donations. All donations will go to the Community Action Coalition (CAC).

On any given day, an estimated 103,000 people, including nearly 39,000 children, may go to bed hungry in southern Wisconsin. All food raised during our event stays in local area food pantries – alleviating hunger in Dane, Jefferson and Waukesha Counties. Each year, CAC distributes approximately 2.5 million pounds of perishable and non-perishable food to people in our communities.

Schools also have the opportunity to win $1,000 by participating in the “Thanksgiving on the Mayflower School Challenge.” Please consider a donation!
