MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — WCCO would like to thank everyone out there for helping make this year’s Let’s Kick Hunger radiothon a big success.

The radiothon earned $260,901 for Second Harvest Heartland, an accomplishment that Minnesotans should feel very proud of.  This helped pushed the seven-year total for the vent to nearly $1.5 million.

The entire 100 percent of everyone’s donations provide meals to local families in need.

Every dollar raised allows Second Harvest to distribute a meal to three people in the area.
