106.9 The Fox and FM99 are hosting the 21st Annual Mayflower Marathon Food Drive, presented by Bud’s Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, with a special thanks to Farm Fresh Food and Pharmacy, Chevrolet, Hampton Roads Moving & Storage, and First Team Auto.
Your favorite on-air personalities from 106.9 The Fox and FM99 will be reaching out to their listeners from the Mayflower Marathon, November 17 – 19, collecting food and funds to provide the gift of a meal this holiday season for the thousands of individuals who struggle with hunger across the greater Peninsula. This 57-1/2 hour food drive makes giving easy. Simply drive through and donate. Volunteers will be there to collect your donations.
You can help us get a jump start on the event by purchasing a $5 food bag at any Farm Fresh Supermarket.
