Kool Listeners to the Rescue

Yesterday, an amazing 16,632 meals were donated by 94.5 listeners during our Kool to the Rescue Radioathon!

The radioathon capped off a month long partnership with 94.5 Kool FM and Fresh & Easy to feed hungry families here in the Valley. Listeners had the chance to earn reward points and qualify for prizes every time they donated to Phoenix Rescue Mission.

I joined our group of volunteers by answering phones and giving updates through Twitter and Facebook throughout the day. We had time to get to know each other while waiting anxiously for our phones to ring and I had great conversations with people who’ve served in our dining hall and have given back to the Mission in many different ways as well as a couple first-timers.

At the end of the day, we had a generous caller who gave a substantial amount and took the next step of offering to match donations until the end of the radioathon. We also had someone who gave $5, apologizing that it wasn’t more.

To everyone who gave, please know that every gift has an impact. Every meal provided for our families means they won’t have to choose between eating and keeping the electricity on. Every meal provided is a small weight off the burden they carry of trying to make ends meet.

For all the families’ lives you have changed, we thank you.
