Beasley Media Group’s 93.3 WMMR-FM hosted "Preston & Steve Camp Out For Hunger" November 1-5, collecting more than 2.3 million pounds of food and raising $1.04 million to benefit needy individuals and families residing throughout the greater Philadelphia area. Proceeds directly benefited local hunger relief organizations through Philabundance, Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization.
