GREATER MEDIA Classic Rock WCSX-F (94.7)/DETROIT morning personalities TRUDI DANIELS and JIM O'BRIEN recently teamed up with CHARITY MOTORS and KROGER to give a local family the ultimate CHRISTMAS gift: the pair's SANTA VAN and a $150 KROGER gift card.
Station listeners were invited to go to www.wcsx.com to nominate a family that they felt was in dire need of a van. The countless heartwarming stories made the decision to pick a winner very difficult. The chosen recipient of the WCSX SANTA VAN was PAUL from NOVI, MICHIGAN.
PAUL's neighbor, a very loyal WCSX listener, nominated him for the ultimate holiday giveaway. The "30 something" single man took on the sole responsibility of raising his four nieces and nephews by himself. Paul, who currently works three jobs and is trying to get the kids in school, has been walking to work and to the store to buy groceries.
In addition to awarding PAUL the vehicle, O'BRIEN reached out to GARDNER WHITE FURNITURE, after PAUL mentioned that the four children were sleeping on the floor because he could not afford beds. As a result, the retailer is now going to provide beds for PAUL's nieces and nephews at no cost. In addition, the WCSX morning duo is reaching out to local attorneys to try and secure help for PAUL so he can get the children into school.
