Both jocks lived and broadcast their show from a storage unit until they filled an 18-wheeler truck with food. They started on NOVEMBER 2 at 7a and ended on NOVEMBER 5 at noon, enduring two days of snow and temperatures as low as 23 degrees, and as a result about 400 West MICHIGAN residents will be fed through CATHOLIC SOCIAL SERVICES this Thanksgiving.
