Preston And Steve Set Donation Record


WMMR Philadelphia morning hosts Preston and Steve camped out in a parking lot for a week’s worth of broadcasts to generate interest and motivate listeners to donate food to feed the hungry. The marathon netted a record amount of food and cash donations for Philabundance, the Delaware Valley food bank responsible for distributing food to the needy. 772,468 pounds of non-perishable food was collected, filling 37 tractor trailers.  $240,521 in cash was also raised. One cash donation of $80,000 came from an anonymous source after hearing of Camp Out For Hunger on WMMR. 

The Preston and Steve Show welcomed dozens of Hollywood celebrities, local personalities, and live music performers each day. In addition to featuring a different, local house-band each morning, national recording artists performed, including Matisyahu, Sponge, and Living Colour.
