KDWB, KALC Aid Tornado Victims
May 28, 2008 at 12:02 PM (PT)
The outbreak of severe weather that hit the Midwest, struck particularly hard near THE TWIN CITIES. CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KDWB/MINNEAPOLIS PD ROB MORRIS told ALL ACCESS, "We are organizing a fundraiser to help the storm victims affected by the F3 tornado that struck HUGO, MN."
"About 40 homes were destroyed, over 400 had some sort of damage. One person died (a two-year-old). Several more (17) suffered injuries. For the rest of this week, we’re conducting a 'Penny Pick Up.' Our staff members will visit area locations for an hour at a time, and collect spare change which listeners will be able to throw/toss/donate into the back of our KDWB Pick-Up truck. Monies will be donated to the HUGO RELIEF FUND at the LAKES BANK in WHITE BEAR LAKE, MN. Donations can also be made throughout the day at all BUFFALO WILD WINGS locations, and specific CUB FOODS, TACO BELL, and APPLEBEE's restaurants.”
