iHEARTRADIO Hot AC KMXP (MIX 96.9)/PHOENIX morning show host MATHEW BLADES teamed up with LERNER and ROWE for the 7th annual "BACK TO SCHOOL TOOLS" program, benefiting WORLDLY KIDS, an ARIZONA non-profit organization launched to serve the needs of a unique student population that is homeless and underserved. WORLDLY KIDS’ goal is to address obstacles that impede their learning, so they may receive the education needed to become healthy, happy, and independent adults. .
With MIX 96.9's "MATHEW BLADES In The Morning" as the driving force, listeners were encouraged to make a minimum donation of $9.69 to help reach the goal of $12,000 for WORLDLY KIDS. To date, listeners have helped shatter the goal by raising $15,100!
Said BLADES: “For some kids at TITLE ONE schools, getting something like a backpack and the necessary school supplies can completely change their outlook for the year, It’s that important!”
TOMORROW (AUGUST 16th), volunteers will set up at PALM LANE ELEMENTARY and distribute the supplies to more than 1000 students. Supplies will also go to PT COE ELEMENTARY and CROCKETT ELEMENTARY.
Fans can listen to MIX 96.9 on-air and via the station's website, www.Mix969.com as well as on iHEARTRADIO, iHEARTMEDIA’s all-in-one digital radio service.
