WXLK Sends Relief To Oklahoma Tornado Victims
May 22, 2013 at 4:57 PM (PT)
Radio continues to come to the aid of victims from this week's devastating tornadoes which tore through OKLAHOMA.
At WHEELER Top 40, WXLK (K92)/ROANOKE, staffers spent the day yesterday (5/21) loading trucks full with bottled water, brought in by listeners, which will now be sent to those hard hit areas.
K92 Promotions Dir. KIDD CARTER, speaking with local CBS-TV affiliate WDBJ said, “We really didn't expect this much of a turnout but as you can see the truck is pulling up out back and we're actually going to deliver this in the morning to some folks out in CONCORD, where they've got semis waiting."
From there, the water will travel to OKLAHOMA for the victims as well as relief workers.
MD/Afternoon host BOB PATRICK told ALL ACCESS, "Over 24,000 bottles of water were collected, filling up five trucks. It was exhausting but so rewarding. If asked to do it again tomorrow, I wouldn't hesitate."
