August 11th, 2020—ENERGY 106, HOT 100.5 & CKJS 810 AM are proud to present‘The Back to School Supply Drive’, in support of Winnipeg Harvest.Beginning Wednesday, August 12th, our stations will open their doors for school supply and food donations until Friday, September 4th, 2020. The inspiration for the school supply drive comes from the recent numbers released by Winnipeg Harvest, who have shared the subsequent impacts that the COVID-19has made on the thousands of Manitobans in need across the province.
Winnipeg Harvest has seen an increase in demand by over 30percentsince March”, says Adam West, Program Director for ENERGY106and HOT 100.5. “With the added stresses of COVID-19 and now the upcoming school year, families in need are now facing the rising costs of school fees, childcare, and school supplies that will no longer be shareable within classrooms. We want to help with these burdens as much as possible for these families. Winnipeg has proven again and again that we are a strong and caring community, and we’re all in this together”.As added incentive for donating in the coming weeks, the tri-station drive is also giving listeners the chance to win some great prizes from Take Time Home Cleaning and Intercity Autobody, including1 of 5 new Google Home Mini’s and two 4 hour home cleaning services.
To enter, listeners can drop off their school supplies or food donations at either the ENERGY106, HOT 100.5& CKJS 810 AM studios at 520 Corydon Avenue from 9am to 4pm Mon-Fri, or at Intercity Autobody at 230 Jarvis Avenue from 8am to 4pm Mon-Fri.
