100.7 MIX-FM And Salvation Army Prepare for Inaugural September Salvation Radiothon
TERRE HAUTE, IN (Sept. 23, 2020) Throughout the month of September, 100.7 MIX-FM Radio and The Salvation Army has celebrated September Salvation in an effort to raise money and awareness for the multitude of programs the charity offers to the community. Over the last three weeks, MIX-FM has encouraged listeners and community members to give back to The Salvation Army throughout this campaign. These efforts will culminate in the inaugural September Salvation Radiothon this Friday, September 25 th from 6am to 6pm on 100.7 MIX-FM.
The Salvation Army has provided the Wabash Valley community with food, clothes, emergency financial assistance, school supplies, toys during the holiday season, and so much more for the last 133 years.
The Salvation Army is now also helping families who are struggling as a result of COVID-19. The organization is providing emergency lodging, utility assistance, WIFI for students during distance learning, and more for those individuals who qualify. Fearing that the Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser of the year – the Red Kettle Campaign –may be in jeopardy due to the pandemic, MIX-FM decided to lend a hand and support the cause.
“For over 133 years the Salvation Army has been there with open arms for the homeless, the hungry and families in need in the Wabash Valley. We want to help this organization thrive well into the future,” said Kevin Lambert, co-host of the MIX Morning Show on MIX-FM.
“Join us for September Salvation. The time is now to learn, spread the word and give for the organization that’s always in season – The Salvation Army,” adds Brooke May, co-host of the MIX Morning Show on MIX-FM.
“Salvation September [is something] we will all remember [and we] can’t wait for next year’s Radiothon with 100.7 MIX-FM,” said Salvation Army Envoy Sue Linden. Those who are interested in donating to this Radiothon campaign can currently do so at mymixfm.com.
Additionally, on Friday from 6am to 6pm supporters can also donate via phone by calling 812- 917-3949 or by texting HOOSIER to 24365 to make their pledge.
Funds raised during the September Salvation campaign will go towards the purchase of a new
commercial refrigerator/freezer combination unit for the Salvation Army’s food bank to keep it
fully stocked for those in need. A previous unit stopped functioning in March and the
organization has struggled to be able to replace it. In addition to the refrigerator/freezer, money
raised will also be used to bring on an additional caseworker to help process applications and
provide individuals with necessary resources.
