PEAK BROADCASTING Country KAWO (WOW COUNTRY 104.3)/BOISE, ID held their third annual HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS event for the BOISE RESCUE MISSION beginning on MONDAY, DECEMBER 12th. KAWO APD DAN MATTHEWS spent 104 hours living in a tent in front of the local WALMART collecting food, toys and clothing for the BOISE RESCUE MISSION.
KAWO needed 900 turkeys for their community outreach programs and KAWO was able to collect 310 actual frozen turkeys and raised enough money for the mission to buy the rest. In addition to the frozen turkeys, KAWO helped raise tons of food, clothes, coats and toys for TREASURE VALLEY families.
MATTHEWS said, “If you imagine the maximum amount of comfort one can achieve while sleeping in a tent outside of a WALMART -- I reached it! But was completely worth it to see our wonderful community pull together to help those in need.”
