Danforth & Partners raise $10,000 for Food Bank of Western New York

The Danforth Team joined forces with the Food Bank of Western New York and 97 Rock’s DJ Jickster to help raise funds for the less fortunate. Danforth reached out to local partners to donate money that will be used to buy Thanksgiving turkeys for families across Western New York.

The 10th annual Rock Out Hunger Food Drive kicked off Wednesday, November 18th at 4 pm with a press conference. DJ Jickster is living in a 47-foot trailer while accepting cash and food donations on behalf of the Food Bank until Wednesday, November 25th. The trailer is located in the parking lot of the Eastern Hills Mall in Williamsville, NY.  The Food Bank has set a lofty goal of breaking their previous record set in 2014 of 1,000 turkeys, 20,000 lbs of food and $30,000.

This year started off strong for the Food Bank as Danforth and partners made a $10,000 donation on the opening day of the food drive. Sources at the Food Bank stated that this translates into 400 turkeys for the needy. The Danforth team could not have done it without our partners who generously donated to make this significant contribution. We would like to thank the following for their generosity:
