The Tide's Community Calendar
For the month of January, 98.1 The Tide is helping our local food bank. It's the Tide's Month Long Food Drive in support of the Volunteer Center of Charlotte County. Following the holidays, the shelves at the food bank are extremely low and we need your help to restock the shelves. We are urging all of our listeners to donate some non-parishable food items. You can drop your donations off at our Tide Studios, 112 Milltown Blvd in St. Stephen. It's the Tide's Month Long Food Drive!
