WKVI Food Drive Planned Saturday in Knox, Winamac


Stop and see WKVI staff members Saturday in Knox and Winamac as you shop for your Thanksgiving dinner. The station is once again hosting a bi-county food drive to benefit the Community Services of Starke County and Pulaski County Human Services food pantries.

Tony Ross and Ed Hasnerl will be at Five Star in the Knox Mall from 10 a.m. until noon Central, while Nathan Welter and Mary Perren will be at Sanders in Winamac doing the same. Lenny Dessauer will be in the studio checking in live with the teams at both locations during the two-hour donation drive.

“WKVI is a community radio station,” Dessauer said. “Hosting our annual food drive allows us to interact with our listeners and provide a valuable service to the community we call home. The food pantries in both Knox and Winamac are an important part of that community, especially during the holidays. It is our hope our listeners in Starke and Pulaski Counties will once again give generously as they do every year.”
