Nearly 3,000 pounds of food collected for Big Give
JANESVILLE — Nearly 3,000 pounds of food were received Saturday during the Big Give Food Drive.
“We also received $602 in cash, and WCLO radio contributed $750 from an on-air auction of Milwaukee Brewer tickets,” said one of the event coordinators, Kathy Voskuil. “We had great participation from so many area citizens and stores.”
The Brewer tickets were given away last week on WCLO’s “Your Talk Show” hosted by Tim Bremel.
The Salvation Army in Janesville and ECHO will share the proceeds.
“Although we fell a little short of our goal, I was very pleased, and we are all appreciative of the generosity of so many people and businesses,” Voskuil said.
