Jam the Van Food Drive wrapped up on Sunday November 24th and weighed in at over 12,000 pounds of food and nearly $7,000.00 to help feed our hungry neighbors this Holiday season! Donations of Non-Perishable Food Items & Cash for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley were collected by Mark Bolger and all of our friends at Mix 97.7 and the wonderful Volunteers at the Shop Rites in Poughkeepsie, Fishkill, New Paltz, Kingston, Ellenville, Dolson Ave. in Middletown, Wallkill and Montgomery.
We are so thrilled and grateful, not only for the hugh amount of food donated, but also the amazing effort that so many people put in to make Jam the Van such a success!
