WDIY Partners with Second Harvest Food Bank During the 2021 Fall Membership Drive
Every dollar donated to WDIY during this year's Fall Membership Drive will help provide meals to those in need in the Lehigh Valley. For every $100 WDIY receives in donations, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley will provide 21 meals to individuals and families in our community. WDIY has partnered with Valley National Financial Advisors to cover the costs of the meals, allowing 100% of WDIY member donation to stay with the station.
Second Harvest’s network of agencies which receive meals include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, childcare facilities, and rehabilitation facilities.
WDIY's 2021 Fall Membership Drive began on-air on Monday, October 11, 2021 after running a Pre-Drive effort online and through the mail.
In the fall of 2020, WDIY held the same partnership, with member donations resulting in Second Harvest delivering 12,362 meals to those in need in our community.
