Long Island Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace during the month of November to donate food and/or funds for Long Islanders who need food assistance.
In support, WALK 97.5 hosted a special live broadcast on November 17th, from 5am until 7pm, at the Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace in Port Jefferson Station. Over the course of the day, WALK 97.5’s on-air appeal and in-store promotion produced 17,589 pounds of food collected for Long Island Cares. Additionally, in-store monetary donations raised $10,557.14 for Long Island Cares.
“This is the 22nd year WALK 97.5 was able to use our airwaves to collect a large amount of food to support our friends and neighbors who receive help from Long Island Cares,” said Patrick
Shea, Program Director and midday personality on WALK 97.5. “It’s a tradition I look forward to each and every year.”
The WALK 97.5 Thanks-For-Giving food drive is a month-long effort with dozens of food drives anchored by an annual live broadcast event. 2022 welcomed Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace to the campaign as the host sponsor offering both WALK 97.5 and Long Island Cares the opportunity to be on-site in their stores working with their staff and customers for the betterment of Long Island.
