WXRK's Nick Cannon Working To Stamp Out Hunger
March 23, 2011 at 5:55 AM (PT)
CBS Top 40 WXRK (92.3 NOW)/NEW YORK morning star NICK CANNON is teaming up with the FEEDING AMERICA COUNCIL, CAMPBELL SOUP, and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LETTER CARRIERS to "STAMP OUT HUNGER ACROSS AMERICA" on SATURDAY, MAY 14.
Now in its 19th year, STAMP OUT HUNGER has become the nation's largest single-day food drive. In 2010, letter carriers collected a record-setting total of 77.1 million pounds of food donations along their postal routes. This pushed the 18-year total to more than one billion pounds of food.
NICK CANNON is supporting the letter carriers by appearing in radio and print public service announcements. Both promote the campaign and urge Americans to help their neighbors in need by donating a sturdy bag containing non-perishable foods ... such as canned soup, canned vegetables, pasta, rice or cereal ... next to their mailbox prior to the time of regular mail delivery on SATURDAY, MAY 14th.
CANNON said, "My family turned to food pantries for assistance from time to time when I was growing up, so I know first-hand how important this food drive is."
