WWJ’s 11th Annual Winter Survival Radiothon For THAW
WWJ Winter Survival Radiothon For THAW
Friday, February 7, 2013, 5 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Winter is a cold and frightening time of the year for thousands of Michigan families who are struggling to heat their homes.
The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) has been assisting Michigan residents facing an emergency energy crisis for 27 years and we anticipate the “need” this year to be greater than ever.
Heat and lights during a Michigan winter are a necessity, not a luxury. During the cold months ahead many are faced with unimaginable choices such as heating or eating, those most vulnerable in these conditions are children, seniors and people with serious medical conditions.
To help those facing such a crisis, WWJ Newsradio 950 and The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) are partnering for the annual Winter Survival Radiothon. Your pledge to THAW will warm a heart and a home. (To learn more about THAW, click here, click here.)
WWJ Newsradio 950 will broadcast LIVE on Friday, February 7th, 5 a.m. - 7 p.m., to help raise much-needed funds for THAW.
- Live interviews with families that THAW has helped during previous years will air during the Radiothon, as will on-air check presentations from sponsors, on-site reporting and so much more.
- The heart of the Winter Survival Radiothon is the on-site donation call center, where volunteers will be taking phone pledges and auction bids.
- Online donations can also be placed. Click here to donate online.
- Back by popular demand is the 950 Club! You can join the 950 Club by making a donation of $250 or more. Just for joining, you will receive a special gift!
- Make an on-line donation and you’ll receive free exterior car wash from Jax Kar Wash.
Last year’s Winter Survival Radiothon raised over $300,000 and we couldn’t have done this without your help. We are encouraging you to donate by hosting or participating in a variety of activities to help raise money for THAW. These funds will help thousands of Michigan individuals and families stay safe and warm this winter.
