Taking place over two days leading up to the Thanksgiving weekend, 103.7 BOB-FM Bob's Breakfast with Jamieson & Jenn kicked off the first ever "Fill Up" on Thursday, October 10th broadcasting live for 12 hours at Real Canadian Superstore. Then on Friday, 104.9 JRFM's The Breakfast Club with Bruce & Taylor rounded out the two-day food drive and fundraiser, broadcasting live from Brett's valu-mart for 12 hours in the Brockville Shopping Centre. Taylor is pictured here with the generous donation from Sherwood Park Manor of 28 food bags. The first ever live-to-air 'Fill-Up' event helped the Brockville and Area Food Bank to raise over 24,000lbs of food and $29,000 cash. Special guests included Brockville Mayor Dave Henderson, MP Gord Brown, MPP Steve Clark, local police, fire fighters, cheerleaders, pirates (yes really) and players from the Brockville Braves. Volunteers from the local Rotary Clubs stepped up to collect and sort all of the donations, local schools also participated in the food drive.

"We are proud to support our community, and it was our privilege to unite with our loyal listeners, clients, and residents across Brockville with a live-to-air, two-day event, held in the spirit of giving back," said Scott McGregor, Program Director, Bell Media Brockville.
