Save Money, Eat Soup, Benefit the United Way
The combining of two KHMO autumn traditions can help you save money and enjoy one of the best ways to warm up on a crisp fall day.
For many years, KHMO partnered with the United Way of the Mark Twain Area each fall for its own radio auction fundraiser. Businesses and organizations would donate goods, services and merchandise to be put up for bid, but the marquee item for most of those years was cases of Progresso Soup, made right here in Hannibal at General Mills.
In 2020, the United Way auction was one of casualties of COVID, primarily because, with people spending more time at home, there was increased demand for Progresso Soup and General Mills didn't have the extra inventory to donate to the auction.
We told you in a previous article about KHMO's Holiday Bids for Bargains radio auction, beginning November 9.
Here's the good part - if you go to the Bids for Bargains website right now, you can purchase cases of Beef & Vegetable, Tomato Basil or Chicken Noodle varieties of Progresso Soup, for only $10 per case. And, 100% of soup sales will go straight to the United Way of the Mark Twain Area's annual fundraising campaign.
And, furthermore, you can come to the KHMO studio at 119 North 3rd in Hannibal to pick up your soup Tuesday and Wednesday, November 9 and 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Then, you can stay warm on these fall days with a hot bowl of your favorite flavor of Progresso Soup.
