Flakesgiving Volunteers Prepare for Giveaway

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Breakfast Flakes from Cat County 102.9 prepare for the 25th Annual Flakesgiving and expect to help nearly 7,000 people.

When you think of Thanksgiving, many people think of a nice home-cooked meal, dessert, and some football, all with family. But for some, they don't have the money. That's why The Breakfast Flakes created Flakesgiving.

"When we first started it was just Turkeys the first year and we thought, okay, let's make it into meal," says Mark Wilson, Co-host of The Breakfast Flakes. And 25 years later, it's now a turkey, plus stuffing, macaroni and cheese, corn, and all the fixings. "We don't care what your situation is, if you are having a tough year. If you need a meal, come get a meal. Nothing to fill out, we don't care who you are. Come get a meal, no questions asked."

The Breakfast Flakes want you to enjoy that meal with people you love. Josie Snyder, a student at Billings Central High School, and about 200 other students, volunteered to help pack the Flakesgiving boxes for the giveaway.

"A lot of these kids are going to see how good they have it. When these people come in line and stand for hours, just to have a meal, sometimes we take that for granted. So, it's gives them a first hand experience about what some of the pain and suffering other people are going through," says Paul Mushaben, Co-host of the Breakfast Flakes. "It's an annual tradition where the kids can come and help for a day, get some volunteer work in and do some good for the community."

The Flakesgiving giveaway is Saturday, November 23rd at noon at the Metrapark Lower Lot. The meal feeds 5 to 7 people. Volunteers are needed and asked to arrive at 10 AM.
