Nonperishable Food Drive

Neighbors helping Neighbors. In an effort to replenish our area food pantries, WJHG and WECP TV along with Peaden Air Conditioning and locally owned participating UPS Stores, are taking in donations for nonperishable food items to ensure all families in Bay County and surrounding areas will have something to eat this holiday season.

Many families lost everything, and many continue to struggle. Be a part of this campaign to collect nonperishable food items. Together we can make a difference!

You can drop off your donations at our station on Front Beach Road, Peaden Air Conditioning on Baldwin Road or any locally owned and operated UPS Stores from now until August 1st. For more information about our participating sponsors, please click on their logo to visit their website.

Items will be picked up 12/12 at participating locations, brought back to station to be counted/weighed and then distributed 12/13 to area food banks.

Together we are #850Strong!
