JOLIET, IL, August 5, 2016 – Alpha Media, Joliet announces that 98.3 Hometown Country afternoon host, Todd “Bossman” Boss raised $9,830 in food and monetary donations with a 55-hour hunger strike. The hunger strike benefitted the Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry in Aurora and took place on July 28-30.
Each year, the Aurora Illinois Food Pantry serves the nutritional needs for over 6,000 families and individuals, a number that continues to grow each week. Many of their clients are children, the elderly, low income residents, and the disabled. Clients also include the “working poor”, those individuals who are employed but do not earn enough to make ends meet.
Alpha Media Program Director, Roy Gregory commented on the announcement, “He’s one tough warrior. I don’t know if I could’ve lasted one day let alone almost three! We are so proud to help the Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry and make a difference in our area! By the way, Bossman’s first meal was a Snickers Bar. I guess it does indeed satisfy!”
Joliet stations WCCQ, WSSR, WRXQ, and WJOL will be hosting a craft brew fest, Cock-a-Doodle Brew Fest on October 8th with proceeds benefiting the Marie Wilkinson Food Pantry.
