911 Gives Hope For The Holidays


EVANSVILLE (DATE) – For this upcoming holiday season, the Townsquare Media Radio Stations (WKDQ, WJLT, WDKS, WGBF, WGBF-AM) will team up with Henderson Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and the 911 Gives Hope charity to present the fourth annual 911 Gives Hope For The Holidays. Last year we successfully filled a 53 foot trailer with toys that were distributed to the children’s wards at local hospitals. This year all five radio stations will again partner together for a mass broadcast radiothon to urge the public to donate toys, clothing, gift certificates and more to children’s wards at Deaconess Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Evansville Psychiatric Children’s Center and the Ronald McDonald House.

The radiothon will begin 5:00 a.m. on Friday, November 30 and will run thru 6:00 p.m. on December 2. The radio stations will broadcast live from the Walmart on Burkhardt the entire weekend with additional broadcasts live from Henderson Chevrolet in Henderson, KY. Local fire departments, police departments, sheriff’s departments, and AMR will be in attendance all weekend in an effort to fill another 53 foot trailer.

The toys collected will be sorted and delivered to the local hospitals just in time for Christmas.
