WPEG Raises Money For Home Center

CBS RADIO Urban WPEG (POWER 98)/CHARLOTTE’s morning team participated in a 28-hour effort to aid a homeless shelter this week. “THE MORNING MESS,” headed by “ NO LIMIT LARRY,” hopes to raise a least $25,000 for the overcrowded shelter.
“You’ve got to count your blessings and bestow those blessing upon somebody else,” said LARRY. "The ultimate goal is to expand and then reopen the shelter. It's currently a 200-bed facility that has been forced to house as many as 300 women and children every night."
What is particularly significant is that this market-leading station is one of only a few major stations in the country with a local morning show, capable of pulling off this type of sorely needed community effort.
