Hi there…

It’s been a while since I’ve sent out an e-mail but this is too important to miss! 

The 26th Annual Salvation Army Bed & Bread Club Radiothon is just two days away…this Friday, Feb. 22, live from the Oakland Mall! I’ll be broadcasting all 16 hours - from 6am to 10pm on 760 WJR - as we once again raise vital funds that feed 5000 men, women & children every day, 365 days a year, and shelters more than 400 Metro Detroiters every night. 

Your donation of $10 a month (that’s $120 a year) FEEDS ONE PERSON FOR ONE ENTIRE YEAR! Or if you can afford $20 a month ($240 a year), you’ll be feeding TWO PEOPLE FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR.

Every penny raised during the Radiothon goes directly to this incredible feeding program. There are 4 “Bed and Bread” Trucks that head out to the streets loaded with food everyday, no matter the weather. They literally take what is often the only meal of the day right to the people. No other city in the country has this unique and essential program!  

If you prefer, you can donate right now by going to www.dickpurtan.com and clicking on the “Donate Now” button, or simply call 1-248-528-0760. The phone lines are up and running and Salvation Army volunteers are ready to take your call! 

The need is great and any donation you can afford will be greatly appreciated! 

Thank you so much…


P.S. You can also watch live-streaming of the entire event @ wjr.com as well as on Channel’s 2, 4, & 7’s websites.
