Interfaith Social Services
Sonora, CA - The hope is that everyone in the Mother Lode will have a warm holiday season.
Clarke Broadcasting is kicking off its Santa Fly-In Food and Coat Drive in partnership with Interfaith Social Services. On Saturday, December 1st the community is encouraged to drop off non-perishable canned or boxed food items and/or new or lightly used coats to Standard Park on Tuolumne Road. The hours will be 9am-noon.
Interfaith Director Cathie Peacock was Thursday's KVML "Newsmaker of the Day".
Peacock says there is an overwhelming need for food and coats this year. During a typical month, over 800 families come into the Interfaith office to receive food. Cash donations to Interfaith are also encouraged. 100 percent of all donations go to Interfaith and it is a tax deductible donation. Star 92.7 and 93.5 KKBN are hosting an on air cash drive both this morning and Friday morning.
Businesses are encouraged to join the cause and drop food and coat collections at Standard Park on December 1st. It is requested that donations not be dropped off at the Clarke Broadcasting office.
Also on December 1st at Standard Park, Santa will arrive at 11am by helicopter courtesy of PHI Air Medical. It is a chance for kids to get a picture with Santa.
The "Newsmaker of the Day" is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
