Each year, WYCR Rocky 98.5 joins New Hope Ministries, a local non-profit charity, to promote the Feed-A-Friend marathon in early December. The purpose of this mission is to provide area residents with food over the holiday season.
Throughout the first two weekends in November, Rocky 98.5 personalities (Joe Black, TJ McVay, and Bill O’Brien) visited local Kennie’s locations for two hour broadcasts to collect both food and monetary donations. This was the fifth year of doing Feed-a-Friend and each year, it continues to gain more momentum.
On Wednesday, November 17th, Rocky 98.5 staff members including Jeff Naugle (Program Director), Bill O’Brien (Afternoon On-Air Personality), Linda Propheter (General Sales Manager), Cortney Shupe (Local Sales Manager), Danielle Christopher (Account Executive), and Jenn Williams (Account Executive) visited New Hope Ministries at their Hanover location to drop off the food that was collected. In total, 1,500 pounds of food and $4,100 were donated to the Feed-a-Friend drive.
