GOAL: To help keep the best pediatric healthcare close to home on the SouthCoast
The Friends of Jack Foundation, Fun 107 and 1420 WBSM invites the community to dine out at some of the area’s best restaurants on the third Thursday of each month from April to October, with 15 percent of all proceeds going directly to the Friends of Jack Foundation.
With the funds that are raised though Food for Tots, the Friends of Jack Foundation works with local healthcare providers to maintain the best healthcare programs and services available to children living in the SouthCoast region.
In 2018, more than 30 restaurants and 6 corporate sponsors from the towns and cities across the region – including Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Fall River, New Bedford, Tri-Town, Wareham, Buzzards Bay, Westport and Tiverton, R.I. – participated in the first annual Food for Tots fundraising drive; helping to raise more than $86,000.
Food for Tots is supported by Townsquare Media which donates significant airtime on both Fun 107 and 1420 WBSM. In addition, the stations hold live interviews on Fun 107's Rock and Fox Show with Michael Rock and Christine Fox, and Phil Paleologos' morning show on 1420 WBSM.
