It's almost here!!

Four short weeks from today, we will once again ask for your help with Free The Z 2020. For our 20th event, we really feel like it’s very important to get the message out earlier this time around, regarding the turkey drive. This is the time of year where the need in the community gets even bigger with the holiday season looming around the corner, and of course with the COVID-19 pandemic, this has been a year like no other. Hopefully this is where all of our Z-107.3 listeners can chip in and make this a great Thanksgiving.

Back in 2000, our afternoon host, Cori was the very first person to move into the Brewer Hannaford parking lot to collect birds. Since then, it's pretty much been yours truly, with Dan Cashman bunking up with me for two different Free The Z years. That however isn't counting all the station employees, businesses and other folks who have all pitched into make this yearly event an important part of our community.

With help from our friends at Penquis CAP, once again, we will set up camp in the Brewer Hannaford parking lot, starting Tuesday, November 17th, at 6am, and we will not leave until we reach our goal of 2020 turkeys, and something as simple as a $10 bill, or one turkey can make a big difference!

Since we have the luxury of so much time before the event, we are brainstorming ways that we can make everything safe, and as socially distanced as possible. This is our biggest and most important event of the year, and every single year, so many folks in the community have stepped up and made sure that people right here in our area have a nice Thanksgiving dinner.
