Thank you to the BEAR 106.9

Leading into the Thanksgiving long weekend, the BEAR 106.9 wanted to do what they could to help the Ottawa Food Bank.

In an effort to “Bring Down Hunger” the BEAR had one of their hosts, Kaz, live atop a scissor lift until they raised enough food and money to feed 1,069 people.

Kaz was up there for three days, and as a result the BEAR’s listeners showed up in droves.

At the end of the food and fund raiser, 1,500 lbs of food and $7,100 was donated! This is enough to beat their goal, and feed approximately 1,600 individuals!

Thank you to everyone at the BEAR and to all of their listeners who donated!
