CBS D.C Handing Out Free Coats Today
CBS radio in Washington D.C. is partnering with Kars 4 Kids (www.kars4kids.org) to give away free winter coats for kids this afternoon at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD. Market Manager Steve Swenson says “With the arrival of cold temperatures, the lack of proper winter wear is one of the most serious challenges facing parents during these difficult economic times. CBS radio is proud to partner with Kars 4 Kids to work together in helping our community.”
Past events organized by Kars 4 Kids have only reinforced the need for community outreach."We have seen the need, and experienced the gratitude recipients feel when they can properly cloth their children,” stated Kars 4 Kids spokesman Steven Weldler. “That has motivated us to continue expanding these events every year. This year we intend to distribute more than any other year as the need increases."
CBS RADIO Washington, D.C. stations including 106.7 The Fan WJFK-FM, 95.5 WPGC-FM, 94.7 Fresh-FM, El Zol 107.9 FM, All News 99.1 WNEW-FM, and GOV.BIZ Radio 1580 AM will be onsite distributing the coats while supplies last.
