Bills FB Corey McIntyre is going to be at the Quaker Steak and Lube tonight (Friday) on Transit Road in Williamsville from 5-6 pm tonight to help support the Rock Out Hunger campaign.

McIntyre kicked off the 97 Rock “Operation; Rock Out Hunger” campaign by donating $1,500 dollars to help the Food Bank of Western New York.  McIntyre is donating $1.00 for every item donated up until $3,800.

He’ll be joined by teammates including running back Fred Jackson, running back C. J. Spiller, safety/linebacker Bryan Scott, wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt and others as they help DJ Jickster from 97 Rock collect much needed food donations for the Food Bank from 5-6 pm.

97 Rock’s DJ Jickster moved into a Food Bank of WNY trailer on November 16th and is calling it home for seven days as he promotes the “Rock Out Hunger” food drive to fill the trailer. Go to 97 Rock’s website for more info.
