ALPHA MEDIA/DAYTON, OH Urban AC WROU (92.1) and Top 40/Rhythmic WDHT (HOT 102.1) recently added to the growing list of celebrities, businesses, and organizations to collect water and filters for the people of FLINT, MI.
PD FAITH DANIELS told ALL ACCESS, “After learning about the cases of water being solicited in HUBER HEIGHTS, CLAYTON, and TROTWOOD through a collaboration of those cities Mayors, I wanted to jump on board and help get the word out. I reached out to the Fire Chief of TROTWOOD OH, STEVE MILLIKEN, and eventually spoke with Mayor MARY MCDONALD and they both welcomed our support. We also partnered with the surrounding municipalities of HUBER HEIGHTS, OH and ENGLEWOOD, OH.”
“We promoted the event in less than 24-hour. Then both stations did a live broadcast from the TROTWOOD firehouse for five hours and raised cases of water that were loaded into four semi-trucks and one smaller box truck and delivered to FLINT this past SUNDAY. We collected 4,801 cases and 1,002 gallons of water all totaled. It's been a wonderful journey to see our community to come together and help an entire city that needed us. And it's always great when I can team up in-house with HOT 102.1 PD RYAN DRAKE and APD KEVIN NASH."
