Way up north, radio was doing its bit to ensure the kids had a happy holiday. Alpha Media’s KWHL raised $36,107 and thousands of donated toys during their 21st Annual Toys for Tots toy drive. It was a three-day event in partnership with 106.5 K-Whale and the U.S. Marines. The K-Whale on-air team manned and broadcast live from the Toys for Tots RV, December 7-9 and provided food, drinks, and prizes to the hundreds of listeners who contributed to the effort. Despite temperatures in the single digits, listener donations arrived in a steady stream throughout the event.
Alpha Media, Alaska Market Manager, Scott Smith commented on the announcement, “It is a testament to the power of the K-Whale brand and its talent that our listeners donate to this cause with such generosity.”
“I am amazed at the community support shown for this fantastic non-profit year after year” remarked Brad Stennett, KWHL Program Director.
