BURNET — With Thanksgiving and Christmas quickly approaching, The Picayune and KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune staff knows there are families here in the Highland Lakes who don’t have the resources to have a “traditional” holiday.

So on Nov. 20 at the KBEY 103.9 FM studio in Burnet on the Courthouse Square, people can help out by donating non-perishable food items or financial donations during The Picayune/KBEY 103.9 FM Radio Picayune Food Drive benefitting LACare of Burnet and The Helping Center of Marble Falls.

“This isn’t just about KBEY and The Picayune helping out, this is a chance for the entire community to lend a hand,” said Amber Weems, president of Victory Publishing Co. Ltd., the parent company of The Picayune and KBEY.

People will be able to drive by the studio and drop off items and even meet on-air personalities such as Ed Chandler and Kay Baker of “The Wake Up Call.”

So get ready for Texas Best Country’s big food drive. Pick up future editions of The Picayune or tune in to KBEY 103.9 FM to find out more.
