Help us to kick off the Canathon with wluc-tv6!
Join TV6 and the TV6 Personalities as they will be on hand to collect non-perishable food items to Fill the Wagon for those in need. Bring your food item to the TV6 gazebo to meet and greet, play some Halloween games (did someone say pumpkin bowling!?) and enter for chances to win some ROARsome TV6 swag!
So what is the Canathon?
The TV6 Canathon began in 1982 with about 700 pounds of food being donated to help the local food pantries that first year. Since that time the annual donations have increased dramatically with over 133,700 pounds of food being donated in 10 Upper Michigan Counties in 2015, plus over $8,000 in cash donations were received. Since the event began in 1982, the people of Upper Michigan have donated over 3.44 million pounds of food to their local food pantries.
The continued success can be attributed to a number of factors. One of the most important is the partnerships we have developed over the years with a number of local organizations and radio stations.
