High School students around Knox County are collecting food and monetary donations to support the 40th Annual Food For The Hungry Drive. 

WNZR’s Marcy Rinehart talked with Collection Coordinator, Shawn Dugan about this year’s unique fundraising. Each school is finding unique and creative ways to motivate students to get involved with the collection.  Click HERE to hear their conversation. 

Top collecting schools in two categories will once again be awarded the traveling plaque as provided by COTC to recognize each school’s accomplishment. 

The Central Knox County Award will go to either Mount Vernon or the Knox County Career Center. And The Greater Knox County Award will go to one of the following schools: Centerburg, Danville, East Knox, or Fredericktown. Each year, the winning school’s name is added to the traveling plaque. 

Representatives from each school will be invited to participate in the Food For The Hungry broadcast from the Memorial Theater at the Knox Memorial on Friday, Dec. 10. 

For more information about the High School Food Drive Competition, schools and students can contact Shawn Dugan through email by using shawndugan@windstream.net, to help coordinate their collections or answer questions.
