MONROE — The FM radio station 99.1, THE FUN ONE is partnering with the Union County Crisis Assistance Ministry to present the FUN ONE FOOD DRIVE on Friday, Nov. 20 from 12 — 7 p.m. Listeners and members of the community are invited to attend and encouraged to drop off non-perishable food (canned fruits, vegetables and protein, boxed food, dried beans, etc.), which will be donated to the Union County Crisis Assistance Ministry Food Pantry at the conclusion of the event.

“With the holiday season right around the corner, we feel it is important to continue to support our community with our second annual FUN ONE FOOD DRIVE,” said John Griffin, the station’s president and on-air personality. “This event directly supports our friends and neighbors in Monroe and Union County. A live, on-air food drive seems like the perfect way to accomplish our goal, engage our community partners, and have fun while doing so.”
