Newsradio 790 WSGW-AM (Saginaw) has concluded its annual Food For Families Campaign. The station worked with 20 sponsor locations to collect food over four weeks this fall to benefit the Salvation Army Chapters in Saginaw, Bay and Midland Counties. The final event in the campaign was November 17 at the Eddy Band Christmas Concert held at the Temple Theater in Riverfront Saginaw. Many of those attending the concert brought food donations and filled a dozen grocery carts that night alone.
The Food For Families Campaign was started by the station 23 years ago. WSGW Operations Manager and Program Director Dave Maurer says in addition to the tons of food collected over the years, employees of William Kibbe and Associates have taken up collections each year just before Christmas and have given the Food For Families Campaign a total of $80,000 to benefit the Salvation Army.
The MAB would also like to congratulate Dave Maurer, who just celebrated 40 years with WSGW!
