Every year for the last eight years the question comes up, "So why are you guys asking for food donations in one of the most well-off states in the country?" Why? Because there are dozens of homeless shelters all over the state, individuals who are down on their luck, have lost a job, or need medication and can't afford to buy food.

This is why i95 is rolling out our 8th Annual Camping for Cans Food Drive this weekend to benefit Hillside Food Outreach and our goal is to shatter all the previous records over the last seven years, but to accomplish that feat, we really need your help!

Lou and I kick-off our 8th Annual Camping For Cans food drive this Friday morning, November 20th at 6am. I-95 will be on site all weekend 24/7 until Sunday, November 22nd at 4pm, where you can drop off your non-perishable food items anytime. You can easily find us in the Berkshire Shopping Center on Danbury/Newtown Road, Exit 8 off I-84. Please help us stock up Greater Danbury's food banks this 2015 holiday season. Thank you!!
