FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Adams Radio Group Ft. Wayne is teaming up with radio stations across America for the 2nd Annual Radio Cares: Feeding America Radiothon, a grassroots charitable radiothon to raise money for Feeding America®, the largest hunger-relief organization in the U.S., with a member network of 200 local food banks. All donations go directly to Feeding America.

From midnight to midnight on Wednesday, April 14, listeners can visit any Adams Radio Group station website (listed below) and click on to donate. Donations can also be made by texting “RADIO” to 662266.

Kevin Musselman, Adams Radio Group VP / General Manager said, “With an increasing number of people in America in need, food shortages are at an all-time high. People who never dreamt they would need help feeding themselves or their families are showing up for food assistance. With the help of our community, we can restock food banks in cities and towns across the country. Please help if you can.”

“As a result of the pandemic, more and more American families are facing hunger and relying on their local food banks,” said Casey Marsh, Chief Development Officer at Feeding America. “Partnering with radio, with the help of the Independent Broadcasters Association, will help provide critical support through nourishing food to our neighbors facing tough times.”
