CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WIOQ (Q102)/PHILADELPHIA morning maniac BOOKER collected over 3,000 bras for charity and strung them along ROOSEVELT BLVD. This was the culmination of a three-week campaign that raised nearly $4,000 for the LINDA CREED BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION.
But what to do with the overflow of brassieres? Enter an organization called REDEEM-HER, which, along with students at MONMOUTH COLLEGE and their supporters, distributed the bras to a wide variety of organizations, including homeless shelters and halfway houses. When these dedicated volunteers were done, 3,179 bras were handed out to 842 women.
