Freezin’ for Food to brave frigid forecast for 18th annual donation drive in DeKalb
DeKALB – DeKalb County residents have a chance to help feed the less fortunate by participating in the 18th annual Freezin’ for Food drive beginning next Wednesday.
WLBK radio host TD Ryan will be broadcasting, on 98.9 FM and 1360 AM, in the bitter cold Dec. 5 through 8 in the parking lot of Hy-Vee, 2700 DeKalb Avenue in Sycamore.
During Freezin’ for Food’s inaugural year in 2001, a ton – 2,000 pounds – of food was collected; 18 years later, WLBK has set a goal of 50,000 pounds of food.
Residents are encouraged to stop by the Ryan’s holiday Hy-Vee holiday headquarters during the three day drive and donate non-perishable items or give a monetary donation. The collection will begin at 6 a.m. and go through 6 p.m. all three days.
