November 2007 / Bott Radio Network Sponsors Memphis Food Drive
Each year Bott Radio Network Memphis 640 AM partners with Pastor Francis Ssebikindu and the Living Water Community Church to help provide a thanksgiving meal to families in the inner city of Memphis that are in need. This year the event was sponsored for the first time in the eventâ€™s 18 year history by Super Lo Foods. Three of the Super-Lo Foods locations provided drop boxes for our listeners to bring their donations of canned & non-perishable foods. On November 2nd a kick-off for the food drive was organized at the Spotswood location. Bott Radio Network listeners came out to show their support, eat free BBQ from Whole Hog CafĂ©, and register to win prizes given away by WCRV advertisers.
