We are less than 24 hours away from the 29th Annual Salvation Army Bed & Bread Club Radiothon! I've told you how absolutely vital the Bed & Bread Program is... feeding more than 4200 people a day - EVERY DAY - 365 days a year, and sheltering more than 500 men, women and children each and every night. Now I want you to see it in action.
Yesterday, after appearing with my daughter JoAnne on Channel 7 Action News at Noon, I had the privilege of going out on one of the trucks to help feed some of those very real people. And, I don't have to tell you, it was not a day for anyone to be on the streets! But they were. As they always are. And they came in droves. Please scroll through the photos below... and then take out your smartphone, text PURTAN to 41444 and donate what you can. Gail and I are asking you to help "Match" our $30,000 donation and turn it into $60,000. There are thousands of men, women and children who will be grateful for whatever you can give. Thank you!
And don't forget to tune into the live broadcast of the Radiothon - tomorrow - Friday, Feb. 26, from 6am to 10pm on WJR am 760! I'll be hosting the 7pm to 10pm portion...along with "Purtan's People" and a whole host of "characters" from my radio show!
