On Saturday, December 4, 2010, Bank of Ann Arbor will be Rockin’ for the Hungry with Ann Arbor’s 107one. If you’re a listener on 107.1fm you’ll be hearing some familiar BOAA voices talking about our part in this important food drive to stock the shelves of Food Gatherers. A recent survey on hunger in Washtenaw County projects those who need food assistance will increase by 138% this year. We would love to have you stop by Kroger on South Maple, next to the Westgate Shopping Center in Ann Arbor on Saturday, December 4 with a donation of nonperishable food items or money. Every contribution helps.
