Camping for Cans is a tradition like no other in these parts and I say that with a ton of confidence. This annual gathering is the thing I am most proud of, a marathon broadcast that benefits the Hillside Food Outreach. Hillside touches over 2000 families every week.

Every year, we partner with great sponsors to raise money and food for Hillside. These broadcasts have been so much fun and so fulfilling. These are some of my favorite moments from years past.

Some of My Favorite Camping For Cans Moments

This year, Camping for Cans is back but a bit different. We would do the marathon broadcast. We will do it to benefit the Hillside Food Outreach, we will do it with Kathy Purdy, Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton and with Comedian Christine O'Leary.

We will collect non-perishable food items in a contact free drive-thru in the BJ's parking lot in Brookfield at 106 Federal Road. We will accept monetary donations through the I-95 Rock Mobile app and it will take place from Friday, November 20 - Sunday, November 22.

The only difference is, this year Ethan and I will be camping out in the I-95 studio rather than meeting with you face to face. This is not how we would choose to do it but it's the responsible way in the COVID-19 reality. We will use this as and opportunity to deliver the best radio broadcast we can and embrace the tools that we have in the studio. Happy Holidays and thank you in advance for your donation to this amazing cause.

Camping for Cans is made possible this year by:

Thank you so much to our sponsors, this year it means even more than in year's past that you have come to the table to back this effort and the community will never forget your generosity.
