Christian AC KTIS (98.5)/MINNEAPOLIS held its annual food drive for HOPE FOR THE CITY in conjunction with MICHAEL W. SMITH’S “CHRISTMASTIME” tour, adding 30,000 pounds of groceries to local food shelves.
Also, during the concert, SMITH, as Vice Chair of the PRESIDENT’S COUNCIL ON SERVICE AND CIVIC PARTICIPATION, honored SHERI WOOD with the PRESIDENTIAL VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD in recognition of her work as the MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL Coordinator for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD. Through a long-standing partnership with OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD, KTIS witnessed WOOD’S ongoing service and nominated her for the honor.
To date this CHRISTMAS season, 98,645 shoeboxes have been collected for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD throughout the KTIS listening area.
