Camping For Hunger

For the 13th consecutive year, The River 95.3/WZRV will be hosting ‘Camping for Hunger,’ from Monday, November 15th through Saturday, November 20th to raise food, monetary donations and awareness of hunger in the northern Shenandoah Valley.

On-Air personalities Lonnie Hill, and Randy Woodward, along with station owner Andrew Shearer and other staff members won’t be sleeping on the bus this year, but instead will be hosting a virtual radio-thon and collecting your donations daily in the parking lot of the WZRV/WFTR Studios at 1106 Elm Street, Front Royal. During the week-long campout event, The River 95.3 will broadcast live asking for community support and donations for Front Royal/Warren County C-CAP’s food pantry. In-person collections will take place Camping week between 9 am and 4 pm. An online donation link direct to C-CAP, a 501-c(3) non-profit, will also be provided.

Royal Broadcasting President, Andrew Shearer commented, “We are able to garner support from community groups and area businesses in order to make this happen – but it‘s the individual donations that make this such a success. Our neighbors are very generous.”

Past supporters have included the Front Royal Police, Warren County Fire & Rescue, Royal Plaza Shopping Center, CenturyLink, and C-CAP. Numerous local companies have already started in-house food drives to help grow the totals and all donations stay in our local community.

The River 95.3 is committed to continuing to serve the community through direct-involvement events and activities.
