Alpha Media, Austin-Albert Lea Raises Over $24,000 with Feed a Family Event
Alpha Media, Austin-Albert Lea, MN., is proud to announce their Feed a Family event raised over $24,000 for the Salvation Army.
The Austin-Albert Lea stations along with the Holiday Inn-Austin and the Marine Corps Reserve facilitated the first of an annual Toys for Tots collection event and two-holiday meal distributions that took place in Austin and in Albert Lea. These events were made possible by Hy-Vee, Hormel Foods, Mrs. Gerry’s, Bimbo foods and the County Dairy associations. These partnerships helped to not only feed 975 families but with the community’s generosity, a voucher system was put in place that would continue to stock the food shelves well into the new year.
Alpha Media, Austin-Albert Lea Market Manager, Robert Mithuen commented on the announcement, “The incredible number of donations we received this year is a true testament to the giving and caring nature of our listeners, local businesses and our communities here in Austin and Albert Lea. Thanks to their generosity, the Salvation Army of Mower and Freeborn County were able to ensure that families celebrated the holiday season with a complete holiday meal. I can’t thank our on air, sales teams, and sponsors enough for all the time and effort they put into making this annual event a complete success.”
