Clarke Broadcasting is conducting its second day of the Cash Drive in partnership with Interfaith Social Services.
Interfaith Director Cathie Peacock was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Peacock says there is an overwhelming need for both 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.
An on-air pledge drive continues on both Star 92.7 and Today’s Country 93.5 KKBN from 6-10 AM this morning. 100 percent of all donations will go to Interfaith Social Services to help local residents in need.
The goal is to raise over $40,000, as demand has never been higher. The Cash Drive began yesterday (Thursday).
Call (209) 533-1450 to donate.
Tomorrow (Saturday), residents and businesses can again join the cause and drop off coat collections at Standard Park from 9 AM – Noon.
Santa Claus will arrive at 11 AM by helicopter courtesy of PHI Air Medical. Bring a camera as this is also a chance for kids to get a picture with Santa.
In 2013, the event for Interfaith raised $40,000 in community cash donations and thousands of coats.
Peacock said that the agency was able to provide food and coats for close to nearly 1,000 families in Tuolumne County. Peacock said the food helped feed those in need for around four months. And the cash donations provided food and supplies for an additional six months.
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 “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
