CKNX Radio Relief Truck Accepting Food Donations

CKNX AM920 Morning Host Buzz Reynolds will broadcast , live in and sleep in a tractor trailer until it is full of food donations for Huron County Food Banks.

The Christmas Season is a time of love, happiness and giving to those around us, but for many, it’s much different. ¬†¬†Last year alone, more than 20,000 people in Huron County relied on food banks, and of those, roughly 6,500 were children.

To raise awareness and combat the problem of hunger within our community, CKNX Radio is giving back.

The First CKNX Relief Truck Food Drive not only kicks off today, but it’s the first time something like this has ever been done in Midwestern Ontario.

CKNX AM920 Morning Man, Buzz Reynolds, will broadcast, sleep, and live in the back of tractor trailer outside Dean’s Value Mart in Wingham for as long as it takes to fill the trailer with non-perishable food items.

With hundreds of people using the food bank every month just to survive, Buzz says it’s time to give back.

“In my world of plenty, that is unconscionable to me and it’s not gonna happen on my watch and that’s why we’re here,” said Buzz Reynolds on Monday night.

Buzz wants to change that, and bring awareness to not only hunger within our community but the issue of homelessness as well.

“There are people locally who don;t have the luxury of being inside a heated trailer like I am, they actually have to try and survive on the street, if you can imagine that so, we’re trying to bring a little bit of awareness to the homeless problem, for sure,” says Reynolds, adding, “you know, tinsel’s nice and gifts under the tree are wonderful and the big turkey at Christmas time is great, but really, come to the CKNX Relief Truck for Huron County Food Banks, I’ll show you what Christmas is really all about.”

The CKNX Relief Truck will accept non-perishable food donations in an effort to give back to those in need within our community.
