Bring your non-perishable food items and toiletries to the Whalen’s Moving & Storage truck in the parking lot of WDAZ at 2220 South Washington Street in Grand Forks until 6 o’clock tonight and we’ll deliver them to St. Joseph’s food pantry in Grand Forks.
A Whalen’s truck will be in the WDAZ-TV parking lot at 2220 South Washington Street in Grand Forks on Wednesday, June 4, from 6 AM until 6 PM. Bring your non-perishable food items and toiletries and we’ll deliver them to the St. Joseph’s food bank in Grand Forks.
Thanks, everybody, for the nice comments about my first thirty-nine years at WDAZ, or as Pat Sweeney calls it my Jack Benny anniversary. (Pat & I are the only two in the newsroom old enough to get the reference.)
It’s been quite the ride. There isn’t much I would chance–even if I could. Few people are lucky enough to get to do what they want to do on television. I’m one of them.
W3You’ll be hearing more about it on television, but once again we here at WDAZ-TV are teaming up with our buddies at Whalen’s Moving & Storage in Grand Forks. You may recall Whalen’s has been instrumental in our Toys For Tots drive during the holiday season the past couple of years.
Now we’re going to be conducting a new drive called Food For Friends. The one-day food drive Wednesday, June 4, will benefit the food bank of St. Joseph’s Social Care and Thrift Store in Grand Forks.
We invited you to join us in filling the Whalen’s truck, this time with non-perishable food items and toiletries
The truck will be open at 6 o’clock the morning of June 4 in the parking lot of WDAZ at 2220 South Washington Street in Grand Forks, until 6 o’clock that evening.
Please help us fill the Whalen’s truck with Food For Friends.
Had a great time talking with the Good Samaritan Heritage Grove men’s coffee club early this morning in East Grand Forks. Not sure what we accomplished, but I got to pick their brains a little and vice versa, I guess.
One thing I learned is that these guys keep up with the news and nothing much gets past them.
We had such a good time we forgot to take a selfie. Thanks for the invite, gentlemen. Looking forward to next time.
Every time I visit, I’m struck by what a beautiful facility Good Samaritan Heritage Grove is.
We’re going to be talking soon on WDAZ News @5 with best-selling author Jeffery Deaver about his new thriller The Skin Collector.
