JOURNAL Oldies KGMG (MEGA OLDIES 106/3 & 104.9)/TUCSON is kicking off its 8th annual "Shoes for School" drive to collect shoes for needy kids in the area. The promotion, running through AUGUST 9th, is being sponsored by PAYLESS SHOE SOURCE and SLEEP AMERICA.
"Hundreds of children in the TUCSON area whose families would not otherwise be able to get them shoes for the school year are provided new shoes thanks to the generosity of our listeners and sponsors," said PD KEN CARR. "While we wish there wasn’t such a need in our community, we’re glad we can help by holding another Shoes For School drive."
"MEGA is proud to once again be part of this important program," said JOURNAL/TUCSON OM DARLA THOMAS. "In these tough economic times, the need for community support is greater than ever. MEGA listeners have always been generous and we hope they continue to donate shoes ... again this summer."
