KMLE Nation Listeners “Make a Donation before Vacation” and Raise 280,000 Meals for St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance

In just three days – in the dead of summer – Southwest Gas, Albertsons and the generous listeners of the KMLE Country 108 joined the morning team of Tim, Willy and Andrea to raise $40,000 and distribute more than 280,000 meals to the hungry of Arizona during the first annual “Make a Donation before Your Vacation” Food Drive from June 21-23.

US Airways put out the challenge to Valley companies to Send Hunger Packing this summer and Southwest Gas and Albertsons answered that call with matching donations of $10,000 to help make this drive a huge success. To all who donated – either by phone, internet or in person on Saturday at Albertsons locations manned by Tim, Willy and Andrea (Willy earns bragging right by collecting the most donations) we sincerely thank you for helping St. Mary’s at the most difficult time of the year.

Congratulations to Sharon Harbin of Peoria who took home the $750 US Airways travel voucher – she made and donation and now she gets to go on vacation! Tim & Willy are already plotting and planning for next year – we’ll see you then!
