WASR's broadcast of the 2014 HOLIDAY BASKET to benefit Life Ministries food pantry raised more than $61,000.00 in just 5 days...a RECORD AMOUNT.  When the fundraising ended on Saturday the cash total was over $61,000.00 plus 7 pick-up trucks of food was donated.  The success of this year's event says a lot about the community we live in, and how as a community, we come together to help those in need.  Thank you to ALL doners...and a special thank you to large donors, anonymous donors, and donors for reaching fundraising goals.  WASR is proud to have been able to provide broadcast time to help this worthy cause.  Gary James deserves great credit for the success as the broadcast M/C!

The economy remains very challenging, and even more FOOD PANTRY DONATIONS ARE NEEDED:  If you did not get to participate in WASR's live broadcast...it's not to late to HELP FEED THE HUNGRY in our COMMUNITY!  Please send your checks (made out to Life Ministries Food Pantry) to WASR, PO Box 900, Wolfeboro, NH 03894.  You can also drop off donations of food and non-perishable goods to Spectrum Photo (downtown Wolfeboro) and they will deliver them to Life Ministries Food Pantry.  

We are thankful to all the Rotary volunteers, sponsors, and everyone that donated in so many different ways to make the Holiday Basket such a success.  It is important to note that the substantial amount raised will only last a few months, as even more people are in need of food this year.  In the spirit of the season...
