The Fish/Atlanta Collecting Unused Shoes For ATL Mission
March 24, 2011 at 7:40 AM (PT)
On SATURDAY, MARCH 26th, Afternoon host DAN RATCLIFFE and Weekend personality HEIDI REW of SALEM Christian AC WFSH (104.7 THE FISH)/ATLANTA will be collecting shoes from listeners to benefit ATLANTA MISSION (formerly known as ATLANTA UNION MISSION).
The station based this campaign on a recent study that said the average woman owns 17 pairs of shoes but only wears three of those pairs. Listeners responded, confirming this information so RATCLIFFE and REW began looking for ways to take advantage of those unused shoes.
Shoes can be dropped off at CARRIAGE KIA in GAINESVILLE, GA. RATCLIFFE and REW will broadcast live from 11a (ET) to 2p on SATURDAY. The shoes will be given to ATLANTA MISSION to sell in their thrift stores. All proceeds from the thrift stores support the work of ATLANTA MISSION to end homelessness in ATLANTA.
