HALIBURTON, ON-The team at 93.5 Moose FM is gearing up for our annual Christmas radiothon event in support of local food banks.

Starting Thursday at 6:00 a.m., Moose FM is going to be campaigning to raise money for the Food banks of Haliburton County.

Moose FM General Manager Jenny Hodge says the stations are definitely feeling the spirit of giving this holiday season.

“You can definitely feel it in the air” says Hodge.  “Our entire staff across Muskoka, Parry Sound and Haliburton are getting in the mood to pitch-in and help give back to this important cause.”

And it’s not just Moose FM staff lending a hand.  We really count on our listeners, volunteers, local organizations and businesses who will be donating their time as well this week.

“We are incredibly thankful for their support” says Hodge.  “They’re the ones that push this initiative with us, without the communities help the radiothons wouldn’t be as successful as they are each year.”

The annual event is running for two days, ending at 6:00 p.m. on Friday. You are urged to come into the station and donate via cash or cheque. You can also call 705-457-3897 to donate on the phone.

Staff at Moose FM tell MyHaliburtonNow.com they are hoping to surpass last year’s total when they managed to raise just over $19,000 for the food banks.
