Haliburton County food banks are getting an infusion of money thanks to the record collection of funds from Moose FM’s annual Christmas Radiothon held from Dec. 5 to 6.
With $33800 raised this year the community broke its previous record according to Moose FM announcer Rick Lowes. Lowes said this year’s record amount was a few hundred more than the previous record set last year.
Lowes wasn’t sure what is specifically attributed to the record setting total other than possibly greater awareness but said the station is appreciative of the community’s support.
“Moose FM is extremely grateful for the generosity of our listeners and their support for the food banks of Haliburton County” he wrote in an email.
Donations were made in person with cash or cheque and also by phone.
