Salem Radio Network Raising Money To Help Ike Victims
September 15, 2008 at 3:49 AM (PT)
SALEM RADIO NETWORK will devote MONDAY's programming to a network-wide disaster relief fundraising drive for victims of Hurricane IKE. SALEM is partnering with FEED THE CHILDREN to help storm victims along the GULF COAST.
"BILL BENNETT'S MORNING IN AMERICA" and the MIKE GALLAGHER, DENNIS PRAGER, MICHAEL MEDVED, HUGH HEWITT, and JANET PARSHALL shows will be participating in the efforts, and the network has a special page on FEED THE CHILDREN's website, www.feedthechildren.org/salem, to allow listeners to donate. Donations may also be made at 1-800-604-0300. A $35 donation will provide 250 pounds of relief supplies, including MREs, water, personal care and hygiene items, baby supplies (baby food, diapers, wipes) cleaning supplies, blankets, sleeping bags and other essentials. The money also helps fill and fuel trucks bringing supplies to the affected areas.
SALEM's efforts after Hurricane KATRINA raised over $2 million.
