WNZR (90.9 FM/Christian AC) and WMVO (100.9 FM, 1300 AM/News-Talk-Oldies) in Mount Vernon, Ohio, as well as many individuals, businesses, and organizations rallied together to fight hunger in their community with the 36th Annual Knox County Food for the Hungry Drive on Saturday, December 9. Donations for the drive go to Interchurch Social Services and the Salvation Army to support their local food pantries and emergency services. Fourteen other food assistance initiatives received mini-grants totaling $21,500. The current total is a record-breaking $328,000 and 21 pickup trucks of food.
