iHeartMedia New Haven’s KC101 will partner with Connecticut Food Bank for the 30th annual “KC101’s Stuff-A-Bus” food drive. The initiative helps ensure Thanksgiving for all, when more residents of Connecticut are in need during the holiday season, especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“KC101’s Stuff-A-Bus” will take place Thursday, November 19 and Friday, November 20 at the Hamden Plaza located at 2100 Dixwell Avenue in Hamden, Connecticut from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. on both days. The food donation drive will be a drive-through, COVID-19 safe event. Those donating are encouraged to place items in their car’s trunk and volunteers at the Hamden Plaza will remove donations safely to place into Connecticut Food Bank collection bins.
960 WELI’s Vinnie Penn, 97-9 ESPN ’s Rob Dibble and KC101’s Adam Rivers will broadcast live from the event on both days encouraging listeners to stop by and help their neighbors in need. Suggested donation items include frozen turkeys and non-perishable food items. Listeners unable to attend the two-day annual event can make an online donation here.
Sponsors for the event include Planet Fitness, Connex Credit Union, Toyota of Wallingford, USA Security, Durham Bus Services, CT Party Rentals and Hamden Plaza Association, LLC. in conjunction with JCorp Realty, Inc.
