Tuscaloosa Radio Stations Collect 1,100 Pounds of Food During Annual Drive
A group of radio stations in Tuscaloosa collected more than 1,000 pounds of food for the needy this year during their annual Thanksgiving food drive.
The collection effort is led by Brother J, who hosts a show on WTSK Praise 93.3, in partnership with 92.9 WTUG and WALJ 105.1 the Block, and this is the 57th drive organized by the station.
The three Townsquare Media radio stations urged listeners to drop off non-perishable food at their building on Skyland Boulevard, and fans mobilized in a major way, donating 1,096 pounds of food during the one-week drive in November.
On Monday, the food was collected by the West Alabama Food Bank, who trucked the haul away and weighed the food on arrival.
"Because of you, our loyal listeners, the Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive was a great success," Brother J said. "Thank you very much for your participation in this effort. These Heritage radio stations have been instrumental over the years in providing support for the needy of Tuscaloosa, West Alabama and beyond."
Like last year, the stations will begin collecting again during the month of December, so stay connected to the Tuscaloosa Thread and Townsquare Media radio stations for more on next month's drive.
Editor's note: The three stations featured in this article are owned and operated by Townsquare Media, which is also the parent company of the Tuscaloosa Thread.
