Today, for the eighth consecutive year, Columbia College will use a trolley and the air waves to raise food, funds and awareness for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The Holly Jolly Trolley is making its return to collect nonperishable food as the college’s WCRX 88.1 FM radio team broadcasts live from the lobby of the 33 E. Congress Parkway building all day.

Along with seasonal holiday tunes, special guests include Santa and his elves, area choirs and performers. All food and funds collected directly benefits the Food Depository’s network of 650 member food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters.

If you are in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by or tune in throughout the day.
