Benetrends Gives Back - 2012 Campout For Hunger to benefit Philabundance
Benetrends volunteered at Camp Out For Hunger to help collect food for the local community. Camp Out For Hunger collects non-perishable food items on behalf of Philabundance. Since 1998, WMMR’s Preston & Steve morning show has held an annual Camp Out For Hunger, in which both Preston and Steve "camp out" for one week in November to raise food for Philabundance. The show awards prizes to individuals and groups that donate the most food. Since 1998, the event has raised hundreds of tons to feed the hungry across the Delaware Valley. 2012 was the largest amount collected in the event’s 15-year run.
Camp Out For Hunger 2012 Totals: -$106,494 in monetary donations. -627,678 pounds of food collected. (That’s 313+ TONS of food!)
