June 3, 2013 at 3:55 AM (PT)
CUMULUS Top 40 WZYP/HUNTSVILLE, AL partnered with their sister CUMULUS/HUNTSVILLE stations and WHDF-TV to create “ALABAMA In Action,” a relief drive to assist the victims of the MOORE, OK tornado.
OM STEVE SMITH tells ALL ACCESS, "We teamed up with the AMERICAN RED CROSS and LIFESOUTH BLOOD CENTER in the parking lot of VIRGINIA COLLEGE for a one day drive to collect monetary contributions, bottled water and supplies, along with blood donations. Over $2600 was raised during the day for the RED CROSS, along with enough supplies to pack 3 trucks!"
WZYP morning host MOJO led the convoy and broadcast his show live from the devastated areas, and said, "As the coach of my sons 11 U baseball team I will often place my hand on the tops of their helmets and give them instructions before they go up to bat. As I came across the helmet of one of the children killed at PLAZA TOWERS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL that had been placed on the fence outside the school, I lost it...overcome by emotion, I instinctively reached out and placed my hand on the top of that helmet and cried."
