WPOZ/Orlando Calls For Coats, Listeners Respond
January 12, 2010 at 6:38 AM (PT)
CENTRAL FLORIDA EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION Christian AC WPOZ (Z88.3)/ORLANDO recently partnered with the ORLANDO UNION RESCUE MISSION (OURM). The colder than average temperatures in the area recently have brought over 100 extra people to the mission each night. WPOZ asked listeners to help by donating extra winter coats, gloves and blankets with the "COATS FOR OURM" campaign.
Within hours of announcing the campaign on air, the station conference room was filled to capacity with donated items. The mission sent a van everyday for six days to pick up the items; the room filled up with items just as quickly as it was emptied. WPOZ will continue to collect coats until the temperatures rise back to normal averages.
