The Punjabi radio producers of CJMR 1320 AM radio station have once again come together to fight hunger in our community by hosting another radiothon and food drive in support of Mississauga’s Seva Food Bank. The previous seven radiothons and food drives have collectively raised over $750,000 and 320,000 pounds of food for Seva Food Bank.
The radiothon will take place all day on Friday, November 23rd. Supporters will be able to call into any of the Punjabi shows and make their pledge on the air. These shows include Rangla Punjab, Parvasi, Punjab Di Goonj, Geetan Naal Preetan, Yahoo Radio, Fulkari, Sargam, Ajj Di Awaaz and Mehfil. Over the weekend, listeners will also be able to make donations on the Dil Apna Punjabi, Saanjh Dilan Di, Apna Punjab Radio, Sadda Virsa and Road News Rangoli programs. The owners of CJMR are also contributing significantly to the efforts.
On Saturday, November 24th, a large food drive will be held at over 20 local gurdwaras and South Asian grocery stores across the Peel region.
