CUMULUS/COLORADO SPRINGS joined forces with community leaders on FRIDAY OCTOBER 14th for "Operation Warm-up." The five-hour event enabled listeners to help provide new and gently used coats, gloves, scarves, and hats for neighbors in need.
While cluster morning shows broadcasted live from the parking lot of the new FREEDOM FINANCIAL EXPO CENTER, hundreds of listeners drove through contributing thousands of items including coats, hats, gloves, mittens, boots and much needed winter garments.
The items, as well as cash donations are being used to support a Department of Human Services distribution event in DECEMBER.
CUMULUS BROADCASTING Community Officer GINA KAVALI said, "More than 10% of our community is on some sort of living assistance provided by the DHS, it just made sense to act and take care of our neighbors right here, right now. We were honored and humbled when we saw the outpouring of generosity from our listeners throughout SOUTHERN COLORADO."
