Live and Local radio allows our stations the ability to react quickly and assist those in need when necessary and they did just that.”
Greg Martin, Operations Manager/KTSA Program Director added, “This is what Texans do. People helping people. We were overwhelmed with the generosity of our community and their support of the flood victims. In addition to the goods, collected we also had nearly $4,000 in on site cash and gift card donations, plus another $15,000 in online donations for the day.”
“We wanted to do something to truly help our community and what better way to do that than to donate some time on a Saturday to collect much needed items for those that were affected in the devastating floods. From non-perishable food/drinks to clothing, toiletries, baby and pet supplies, we wanted to help make a difference and we did just that. We are very appreciative of all that came out to donate their time, items and money as well as Cornerstone Church who we gave our donations to and have been making deliveries every 12 hours to the affected areas,” remarked Natalie Berkley, Promotions & Event Manager.
