Last week, with no notice, KNCO learned that the Meals on Wheels program was oout of funds and 38 seniors in our community weren’t gonna get the one hot meal they counted on. We hit the air waves with this news at Noon, and Mary & I talked about it some and how listeners could help out. Then when Swap Shop started the push was on and by 5 we had raised nearly a quarter of the funds needed.
Today at 10 AM we got word that enough funds had been raised to insure the 38 seniors that had been in danger of losing that meal would indeed get their hot meals.
Just another reason I Love This Job……..
