Food For Tots in Back On Thursday

We are so happy to bring back one of our favorite charity programs here at Fun 107.

Food For Tots returns Thursday, May 16.  This year, we are once again back in full swing. We have partnered with some of the very best restaurants on the SouthCoast to help the Friends of Jack Foundation.

Helping the Friends of Jack is Made So Easy

The best part of this program is how easy it is to participate and help the Friends of Jack. All you have to do is show up at one of our participating restaurants, then eat, drink and have fun.That's it. You don't have to say anything or bring anything to the restaurant. Just eat.

A portion of the day's sales goes directly to the Friends of Jack Foundation, a local charity that aims to make the best in healthcare available and accessible to all children on the SouthCoast, regardless of their families' ability to pay.

What is the Friends of Jack Foundation?

The Friends of Jack focuses on the whole child including their physical and mental well-being. The foundation brings Power Wheels Jeeps to local hospitals for children to drive to the operating room before surgery. Children in emergency departments are given stuffed bears to help reduce anxiety and sadness. First responders like police, firefighters and EMT's are provided with Friends of Jack bears that they can use to calm children that may be witnessing upsetting events.  The foundation pays a number of salaries of child life specialists all over the SouthCoast.  These incredible people act as a liaison between the children and the doctors and nurses.
