Fill A Bag, Fill A Bus: Let's End Hunger in Chicago
CW26 has partnered with MeTV FM, the CTA, Jewel-Osco, Greater Chicago Food Depository and Butcher Boy Cooking Oils for our 'Fill A Bag, Fill A Bus' food drive to end hunger in Chicago. We’ll be at Jewel-Osco stores asking you to help fill a CTA bus with nonperishable food items for neighbors facing hunger. Your donations of canned goods will go to Greater Chicago Food Depository food pantries.
If you want to take part and make a difference:
Wednesday, December 6th, we'll be at the Jewel-Osco at 4650 W 103rd St. in Oak Lawn collecting donations from 12P-6P.
Thursday, December 7th, join us Jewel-Osco at 7525 W. Lake Street in River Forest from 12P-6P to donate and meet CW26 talk show host and native Chicagoan, Steve Wilkos. He’ll be there collecting donations from 4:30P-5:30P, so come by and say hello!
If you can’t make it to a Jewel-Osco, get in on the action by donating online. Every $1 donated provides 3 meals to hungry Chicagoans.
