PILLAR OF FIRE Christian AC WAWZ (STAR 99.1)/NEW YORK CITY recently held its "STAR 99.1 CHILDREN'S BOOK DRIVE WITH THING 1 AND THING 2." The station collected more than 8,000 gently used children's books throughout the month of MARCH.
The staff cleaned and sorted the books before delivering them around the state of NEW JERSEY to day care centers, clinics and foster care waiting rooms. “To know that kids in tough situations will find comfort in these books is a great thing. It’s a little touch that reminds these kids that someone cares about what they are going through," said Dir./Programming/morning show host JOHNNY STONE.
THING 1 and THING 2 are characters from DR. SEUSS' "THE CAT IN THE HAT."
