Waterville’s college and community radio station, WMHB-FM, will hold its annual holiday food drive/music give-away on Saturday, December 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at its studio offices in the basement of Roberts Building on the Colby College campus. Donations will benefit the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter in Waterville.

Students and community members are asked to bring canned and non-perishable 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 or non-perishable food items 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.

Sue Goss, director of the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, called the WMHB Holiday Hunger Food Drive “by far the largest food drive of the year and also the longest running food drive as well!”

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.
