Alpha Media, Austin-Albert Lea, MN, have raised over $24,000 for the Salvation Army with their Feed a Family event. The cluster, along with the Holiday Inn-Austin and the Marine Corps Reserve, facilitated the first of an annual Toys for Tots collection event and two-holiday meal distributions that took place in Austin and in Albert Lea. They were they able to feed 975 families, and with the community’s generosity, a voucher system was put in place that will continue to stock the food shelves well into the new year.
Alpha Media, Austin-Albert Lea Market Manager, Robert Mithuen said, “The incredible number of donations we received this year is a true testament to the giving and caring nature of our listeners, local businesses, and our communities here in Austin and Albert Lea. Thanks to their generosity, the Salvation Army of Mower and Freeborn County were able to ensure that families celebrated the holiday season with a complete holiday meal. I can’t thank our on-air and sales teams, and sponsors enough for all the time and effort they put into making this annual event a complete success.”
