JRFM and BOBFM to host 'Annual Food Bank Fill Up' on Friday


104.9 JRFM and 103.7 BOB FM will hold their annual 'Food Bank Fill Up' on Friday in support of the 2020 Thanksgiving Rotary Food Drive.

While the teams normally broadcast the 12-hour event from the Superstore, this year will be different, with JRFM's Bruce Wylie on the air from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. featuring hourly phone-ins from community leaders. 

The Brockville Fire Department and Brockville Police Service will collect donations from the parking lot of the station at 601 Stewart Boulevard. Residents are able to drop off donations all day at the station. 

Mayor Jason Baker will also attend the event. 

The 2020 Thanksgiving Rotary Food Drive runs Wednesday through Saturday and a number of other drop-off locations have been set up around the City:

  • Superstore
  • RBC Brockville Branch
  • Giant Tiger
  • Food Basics
  • Metro
  • Brockville & Area Food Bank
  • Brockville Shopping Centre (old LCBO)
  • TD Bank

The South Grenville Food Bank is also part of this year's drive with donations also being accepted at a number of locations, including fire halls in Prescott, Cardinal, Spencerville, Maitland and North Augusta, as well as O'Reilley's Your Independent Grocer, Giant Tiger and the Prescott Food Bank.
