WYMT along with Appalachian Wireless and Kentucky Power is teaming up with God’s Pantry Food Bank to put on a virtual food drive.
“The reason we’re doing it because that’s what mountain folk do, that’s what we do we help out our neighbors in their time of need and that’s what this region has done time and time again,” said WYMT General Manager Neil Middleton.
The drive is different than normal food drives of the past. Due to the ongoing COVID19 Pandemic, this is not a drive where food will be accepted.
This will be a drive where only money is accepted. It is a way to still give back to those who need food, but also limiting the risk of spreading the Coronavirus.
Donating money can help God’s Pantry buy food in bulk. It allows them to buy greater quantity in than sometimes they’ll get with just pure donations.
