Airport Collecting Donations to Help End Child Hunger

By Brian Schultz

Corus Radio raised over $34,000 last week during their 12 Hours of Christmas Auction to support Hunger for Hope.

And now the Winnipeg Airports Authority is partnering with the broadcaster and Winnipeg Harvest to make an even bigger dent in child hunger in Manitoba.

Beginning today, 8 large baby coin bottles will be located throughout the air terminal building to collect funds in support of Hunger for Hope.

With an influx in holiday air traffic expected this week, the coin bottles will get the much-needed exposure.

CJOB, Groove FM and Power 97 will be live on location at the airport today for the launch.
