CATA donates to drive to combat hunger, food bank shortages

Television and radio stations throughout Illinois are uniting in a statewide fundraising drive — Illinois Broadcasters Uniting Against Hunger — to combat hunger and food bank shortages in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The fundraising goal is $1.5 million.
The Chicago Automobile Trade Association on April 8 donated $15,000 to the cause. Representatives of the CATA said the gift is just a natural extension of the good work the auto dealers do in their communities throughout the year.
Illinois broadcasters, in partnership with Feeding Illinois and the Illinois Broadcasters Association, encourage their viewers and listeners to contribute monetary donations that will go a long way to bolster dwindling food supplies at area food banks. Corporations and individuals looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of neighbors experiencing food hardship can contribute at or by texting FEEDIL to 91999.
"Illinois broadcasters have joined together during these extraordinary times," Illinois Broadcasters Association Board Chairman John Idler said. "The need to shore up food supplies and help feed the hungry has never been greater. The IBA has a long tradition of rallying our members in times of crisis. We have never been prouder to serve the people of Illinois."
Television and radio stations throughout the state of Illinois continue to broadcast stories underscoring the urgent need for food during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The goal of Illinois Broadcasters Uniting Against Hunger is to raise awareness and dollars so food banks can purchase the food they need to adequately serve the hungry in their local communities.
