It's that time of year again! Join the effort to CAN THE CATS this year in the annual food drive competition between UM & the Missoula community and MSU & the Bozeman community.  This marks the 20th year of competition - we need to have the bragging rights.

All donations collected in the Missoula area during this two-week food drive competition stay local and help stock the shelves at Missoula Food Bank & Community Center.

We're teaming with all Missoula Albertson's locations to hold a 12-Hour Food Drive on Friday, November 15th.  You can make food and monetary donations from 7 a.m to 7 p.m. at ANY Albertson's store.

If you stop by the Eastgate Center Albertson's (1003 E. Broadway) between 10a-1p you can say "howdy" to Denny Bedard as he broadcasts live, or between 4p-7p as Ryan Nelson broadcasts live.  And Mike Smith will be at the Albertson's at 2230 N. Reserve St location from 12p-3p.
