Twenty-six years ago, my Dad broadcast the first radiothon to benefit the Salvation Army’s Bed & Bed program.
While he retired a few years ago, today he’s helping the fine folks at WJR carry the torch, raising life-saving funds as part of the 26th annual Radiothon!
Through the years, this effort has raised more than $26 million. The program serves more than 5000 meals every day and shelters more than 400 men, women and children each and every night.
The need never goes away and your donation can help be sure the Salvation Army is there to meet it.
You can watch the Radiothon live at WJR.com , or make a donation by calling (248) 528-0760.
