iHeartMedia AM 570 LA Sports will host the 11th annual Help-A-Hero Veterans Radio-thon, December 12 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dream Center LA, a faith-based charitable organization, will benefit from the on-air fundraiser.
“This is an opportunity for AM 570 LA Sports to give back to our fellow Americans who have fought for our freedom,” said Don Martin, Sr. VP of Sports Programming/GM. “The Help-A-Hero Veterans Radio-thon is our way of saying thanks for their ultimate sacrifice and we are both excited and proud to work with Dream Center LA.”
“Over 11,000 of our country’s heroes are living on the streets of Los Angeles without a place to call home,” said Danise Jurado, Executive Director of Development for Dream Center LA. “Many of them are struggling to acclimate to a civilian lifestyle and battling with emotional trauma; leaving them isolated and homeless. The Dream Center’s Transitional Housing Program for Homeless Veterans is helping our heroes find hope and stability.”
