Illinois Broadcasters Association-member radio and TV stations, including 979XFM and KJ Country 102.3, are uniting in the fight against hunger. Click the graphic below to donate.


You are likely familiar with some of the local hunger-fighting efforts in place in the area, including efforts that operate year-round like Catholic Charities, the FISH food pantry and Enduring Freedom Ministries. Local churches such as Calvary Baptist Church and St. John's Lutheran Church also have year-round efforts.

Currently, First Presbyterian Church in Effingham is making food available from 5 to 6pm, seven days a week, for folks to drop by and pick up. Then, there's the Effingham Unit 40 effort to provide sack lunches and snacks for district students not able to get their school meals while classes are canceled.

Whatever option you choose, IBA-member stations are encouraging your support. Thank you!
