Uniting for a Cause: Stuff a Truck with 97.5 Y-Country
In a powerful display of community spirit, the 2023 Stuff a Truck event on 97.5 Y-Country hosted at Roger's Foodland brought together Stuff a Truck's participating sponsors, and local communities throughout Southwest Michigan for a common cause — supporting the Southwestern Michigan Community Action Agency (SMCAA). The 27th annual event, held on November 13th - 18th, aimed to make a tangible difference in the lives of those impacted by food insecurity in Southwest Michigan, and the results were nothing short of outstanding.
Celebrating Success: $45,000 Raised for Southwest Michigan Communities
The true measure of Stuff a Truck's success lies in the generosity of our community, and The Southwest Michigan Community Action Agency’s Yvonne Vidt tells us people are incredibly generous. In addition to a record-breaking $45,000 raised, the drive stuffed a total of seven trucks with food and personal hygiene items, including 200 donation boxes of goods collected from local schools.
“We had a big turnout,” Vidt said. “Actually, it’s the first year that we’ve ever gathered so many donations in cash. This year, we did raise $22,500, and Wolf Financial is going to match that.”
