KCII’s 15th Annual Caring Christmas Food Drive is underway.

The goal is to collect enough donated items to fill the Big Red Radio. All of the donations are then taken to food pantries across the KCII-listening area in January, to help restock their shelves after the busy holiday season. General manager Joe Nichols says food and toiletry items like deodorant, shampoo, and toothpaste are welcomed. He reminds people to check the expiration date on food before donating. Items can be donated at KCII Radio, at participating businesses, or any time you see the Big Red Radio out in the community this holiday season. Also, pre-bagged items can be purchased at Washington’s Hy-Vee.
