Monte's March

Monte's March

UMassFive is proud to support Monte's March for the second year in a row!

Each November, WRSI – 93.9 The River’s Monte Belmonte leads his annual walk against hunger through the Pioneer Valley. For those two days, Monte, Congressman Jim McGovern, Food Bank Executive Director Andrew Morehouse and a number of supporters, push empty shopping carts 43 miles from Springfield to Greenfield to raise awareness about and funds to prevent hunger in our region. Listeners are encouraged to make donations to benefit The Food Bank of Western MA.

This year, the march is taking place on November 23 and 24, and has a goal of raising $365,000 – the equivalent of 4,000 meals per day for a whole year!

To help Monte's March meet this goal, UMassFive teamed up with Buzz Points, allowing our members to redeem their points as a charitable donation to the Food Bank of Western MA. Donating with Buzz Points is as easy as redeeming! Login to your Buzz Points account online or on your phone with the Buzz Points app. Head over to Rewards and under the Charities section simply donate your Buzz Points to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.
