Generous Donations To Help Hundreds In NW Colorado

santa hot chocolate 2013After 24 hours over two days the 93-7 102-3 KRAI and 55 Country Holiday Drive was acknowledged as a huge success. That, despite a struggling economy and worries over actions by the Obama Administration that have adversely affected the outlook of most residents of Northwest Colorado. During the Holiday Drive, businesses, civic groups, children and the extraordinary residents of the area gave $23,381 in cash and 4,480 pounds of food, along with thousands of gifts and toys for kids and senior citizens. Although the amount of cash donated decreased by about $4,000 from last year, the amount of food was substantially greater. The donations will benefit four non-profit organizations; Advocates Crisis Support Services which received $4,390, the Interfaith Food Bank in Craig which received $7890, Christmas for Kids which received $5706, and Christmas for Seniors which received $5395. Volunteers and others were treated to live music, which was also broadcast live on KRAI. KRAI and 55 Country General Manger Frank Hanel expressed his gratitude to all the volunteers who volunteered their time and everyone who donated to the Holiday Drive.
