WAY-FM MEDIA GROUP Christian WAYM (88.7 WAY-FM)/NASHVILLE launched a multi-phase response to the flooding of MIDDLE TENNESSEE with a live 4-hour broadcast last SATURDAY (5/8) in SPRING HILL, TN, south of NASHVILLE. During the broadcast, listeners donated 400 hygiene kits, 300 pounds of canned food, 40 tents, 40 sleeping bags, 30 cases of water, toilet paper and $1,000 in monetary donations.
“What an incredible display of love today. Because of the generosity shown here, hundreds of families and the entire TENT CITY community will benefit from these items," said WAY-FM midday host DONNA CRUZ.
Donations will be distributed by local non-profit PEOPLELOVINGPEOPLE.ORG and will directly benefit former residents of NASHVILLE'S TENT CITY, a community of homeless families who lived along the CUMBERLAND RIVER before being displaced by the flooding. Donations are still being accepted.
The broadcast was hosted by CRUZ and Operations Director JEFF BROWN who were joined by INO RECORDS artist JONNY DIAZ, CURB RECORDS band MIKESCHAIR and indie artist SHAUN GROVES and Pastor RICK WHITE of THE PEOPLE'S CHURCH in FRANKLIN.
