[photogallerylink id=106028 align=right] On February 16, 2012, 104.3 WOMC broadcast live from Gleaners Headquarters & Distribution Center asking you to dig deep and donate to Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. Listeners all over metro Detroit answered the call by becoming Hunger Heroes. Together we raised $377,177 dollars or 1,113,846 meals!
All donations will put food into the hands of hungry neighbors! Gleaners is well-known for their efficiency in turning dollars into food! Ninety-four cents of every donated dollar goes directly to food and food programs.
