Waterville’s college and community radio station, WMHB-FM, will hold its annual holiday food drive/music give-away on Saturday, December 2, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at its studio offices in the basement of Roberts Building, Colby College. Donations will benefit the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter in Waterville.

Students and community members are asked to bring canned food to the station on the day of the food drive. In return WMHB will give away music CDs, records, posters, tapes, videos and more. For every five cans of food donated, the donor may choose a give-away item. Items will be given away on a first-come-first-served basis, so donors are encouraged to arrive early. “Last year we collected more food than the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter had ever received before from a food drive,” said Lee L’Heureux ’03 of Waterville, WMHB assistant general manager. “This year we hope we can do even better.”

WMHB is a college-community radio station that serves the greater Waterville area with a diverse blend of music including rock, rap, metal, jazz, blues, world beat, folk and country. It is a non-profit educational radio station, broadcasting at 89.7 FM, run jointly by Colby College students and local residents.
