BONNEVILLE Country WUBE (B-105)/CINCINNATI's morning show, CHRIS CARR & COMPANY joined forces with the local U.S. MARINE CORPS RESERVE UNIT for this year's B-105/MEIJER TOYS FOR TOTS drive. Members of the morning show and the MARINES camped out at TURFWAY PARK in FLORENCE, KY for 54 consecutive hours collecting new, unwrapped toys for the drive, which was held DECEMBER 3rd-5th. They collected 1,641 toys and $2,232 during the drive.
Not only did the morning show be collect gifts, they were also put through a series of MARINE CORPS drills to spur more donations. When certain goals were met throughout the drive, CARR & COMPANY had to do sit-ups, chin-ups or push-ups.
CHRIS CARR said: “The listeners of B-105 really showed us what they’re made of last weekend. We told them about the strong need for toys this year and they came through by not only reaching, but doubling our goal! We are honored to have such great support from the U.S. MARINE CORPS. Our men and women in uniform continue to make us all very proud both here and abroad. We saw that firsthand.”
