98.7 FRANK-FM and WTSN 1270AM and 98.1FM are bringing Caring & Sharing back to the Seacoast for its 20th year!

Caring & Sharing is the Seacoast’s largest canned food drive and live broadcast. The event raises canned goods and nonperishable food items as well as cash donations to support 22 local food banks and charities during the time of year then they need it the most; right before Thanksgiving!

Caring and Sharing culminates with a three-day live broadcast and food drive on November 22, 23 and 24, 2019! Caring & Sharing has received The New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters “Public Service Campaign Of The Year” award with 100% of the food and cash collected during the food drive going to Seacoast based charities to stock their shelves for the Thanksgiving and Christmas season.

In 2018, the event received over 37,000 cans of non-perishable food and more than $7,000.00 in Hannaford Gift Cards. Donations reached thousands of people in need. Your participation helps us recognize the need of our neighbors during tough economic times.

Help us fill food pantries throughout the Seacoast and Southern Maine during the holiday season!
