    Preston and Steve will be camped out at the Metroplex Shopping Center on Chemical Road in Plymouth Meeting from Nov. 28 until Dec. 2 to bring attention to the issue of hunger.

    The popular WMMR show hosts will be collecting food donations to support locals in need.

    The 13th annual Campout for Hunger first began in December 1998, with two men and an RV. They  had a goal of raising one ton of food. Since then, the Campout has grown substantially.

    Last year, Preston and Steve collected 527,285 pounds of food. That's equivalent to 263 tons, or 20 tractor trailers.

    The Campout raised $64,119 for Philabundance in 2010.

    They are hoping to top those donations this year.

    Special guests include Congressman Jon Runyan, April and Phil Margera, and NBC10's Tracy Davidson.

    The Metroplex shopping Center is located at 2540 Chemical Road.

    You can drop off donations from 6 a.m-10 p.m Monday through Thursday and 6 a.m- 11 a.m on Friday.
