Alpha Media/Gulfport-Biloxi Helps Flood Victims
August 18, 2016 at 2:20 PM (PT)
The ALPHA/GULFPORT-BILOXI, MS stations pitched in to collect supplies for flood victims in neighboring LOUISIANA. #OPERATIONLOUISIANARELIEF had an original goal to fill one semi truck, but that was far exceeded as three 18 wheelers and an SUV with a large trailer were loaded with necessities.
Top 40 WXYK (107.1 THE MONKEY) personalities JAMES STEELE and VALERIE KATTZ, and SCOT FOX from sister Rock 97.9 CPR helped the cause by broadcasting live from a collection point at GULFPORT City Hall. STEELE said of the effort, "It was touching. It was beautiful. With all of the bad news and bad things going on in the world, this makes you realize that the world isn’t all bad; the world is full of really great people."
GULFPORT Mayor WILLIAM "BILLY" HEWES described the drive as "off the charts successful," and added, "We were proud to have ALPHA BILOXI be part of it. you always step up and help any time there’s a need and we really appreciate it.”
