Radio Cares Radiothon Raising Funds For Feeding America

Cumulus and Westwood One are helping those in need today by leading the Radio Cares: Feeding America Emergency Radiothon. The companies are asking for all radio stations to get involved and help raise money for Feeding America and its 200-member network of local food banks across the U.S. with donations at RadioCares.org. The event will be heard on stations across the U.S. today (April 30) until 11:59 p.m. ET and contributions will accepted through Sunday.

Over 10,000 stations are currently participating either directly, via syndication, or by network affiliation, and stations wanting to get involved can still go to radiocares.org. Cumulus is airing the radiothon across its 424 stations, and Westwood One is promoting the event across all of its 24/7 formats and on its shows as well.

Feeding America established the COVID-19 Response Fund in mid-March, and since then have distributed $112.4 million and over 94 million pounds of food to food banks across the U.S., helping provide nearly 79 million meals to people facing hunger. The organization announced earlier this month that an estimated $1.4 billion in additional resources will be needed over the next six months to sustain operations and continue to provide food for people struggling with hunger.
