North Conway, NH -The 16th annual Mount Washington Radio Food Drive was a huge success. The live radio broadcast took place at the First church of Christ Congregational for 12 hours on 93.5 WMWV, Magic 104.5, and Easy 95.3 as they collect frozen turkeys and non-perishable food items to be distributed across the various Mount Washington Valley Food Pantries.

Members of Infinger Insurance dropping off 100 frozen turkeys at the 16th Annual Mt. Washington Food Drive.

Things started on a great note with Stan Szetela dropping off the first big batch of birds handing in 77 turkeys. Soon after his long time turkey donation rival Buzz Coleman brought in 70 turkeys. However Infinger Insurance took the cake, or Thanksgiving pie, when it came to large Turkey drop offs delivering a whopping 100 Turkeys! In total an impressive 513 frozen turkeys were collected just 32 shy of last year’s record of 545 birds. The stations also collected $4,100 in monetary donations and collected hundreds of of non-perishable food items.

The turkeys and non-perishables were quickly organized and shipped out, thanks to a multitude of volunteers. They are now at the many food pantries across the valley ready to be enjoyed next week.
