CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT’s NOVEMBER campaign to generate awareness and funds for FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION’s work providing no-cost housing and other services to the families of wounded warriors and veterans during treatment aired on all 850 CLEAR CHANNEL stations leading up to VETERANS DAY, an estimated $3 million campaign supplemented by a special 30-minute public affairs program, interviews, and fundraising appeals.
In particular, Talk KSTE-A/SACRAMENTO-KKSF-A/SAN FRANCISCO-KWSX-A/STOCKTON morning team JACK ARMSTRONG and JOE GETTY raised $255,000 during the week of NOVEMBER 12th to help build a FISHER HOUSE at TRAVIS AFB, with the two year total raised by the team reaching $650,000.
“CLEAR CHANNEL is proud to be a longstanding partner of the FISHER HOUSE; today, we believe their work is more crucial than ever as we welcome our military men and women home,” said Dir./Community Engagement JESSICA KING. “They provide our returning heroes with an invaluable resource: Thanks to FISHER HOUSE, there is no need for service members receiving medical care at VA and military hospitals around the world to be separated from their families during their recuperation."
“We are grateful for CLEAR CHANNEL’s generous support to FISHER HOUSE and their commitment to our military families,” said FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION Chairman/CEO KEN FISHER. “The awareness created by this campaign will help ensure that when a service member is wounded, becomes ill, or is injured – their family members will know there is help available. We are also humbled by the generosity of CLEAR CHANNEL’s listening audience for the way they have shown their appreciation for the service and sacrifice of military families across the country.”
