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 Cash and Coat Drive in partnership with Interfaith Social Services.
Interfaith Director Cathie Peacock was Thursday's KVML "Newsmaker of the Day".
Peacock says there is an overwhelming need for cash and coats this year. During a typical month, over 800 families come into the Interfaith office just to receive food. Cash donations to Interfaith are encouraged in order to purchase much needed items.
The possible snow storm has created some scheduling changes for the Clarke Broadcasting's Santa Fly-In Cash and Coat Drive with Interfaith Social Services.
Due to the potential driving hazards and frigid temperatures from the storm, Santa won't be making an appearance this year. However, to try to beat Saturday's bad weather, the coat drive has been pushed up a day. Please plan to drop off your coats this Friday at the old Wright's Tire location at the corner of Restano Way and Mono Way from 9am-2pm. Any size coat is appreciated!
The Interfaith Cash Drive goes on as scheduled. Tune into Star 92.7 and Today's Country 93.5 KKBN on Thursday and Friday morning to help a great cause. An on-air cash drive will be on both Star 92.7 and 93.5 KKBN from 6-10am. Call (209) 533-1450 to donate.
One hundred percent of all donations go to Interfaith Social Services to help Tuolumne County families in need and cash donations are tax deductible.
The first three years of this event the community donated over $70,000 cash and more than 5,000 coats. The donations helped them meet local needs for many months.
The "Newsmaker of the Day" is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
