Cumulus Radio & Northeastern Ford Dealers joined Operation Warm to sponsor an amazing program in OH

Check out these amazing photos from out December 3rd distribution in Youngstown OH! 

On December 3, 2011, Cumulus Radio and Northeastern Ford Dealers joined Operation Warm to sponsor an amazing program in Youngstown.  Their generous support allowed Operation Warm to partner with the Salvation Army of the Mahoning Valley in the distribution of over 1000 coats to children in need.  

The event was staffed by the Salvation Army, Cumulus and Ford volunteers giving vo;unteers a first hand look at how their genorousity impacts thier local community.  The event aimed to distribute the brand new coats to local families in need.  Cumulus, was instrumental in getting this new program off the ground. They spearheaded the fundraising efforts by running campains on all eight of their stations surrounding Youngstown to generate the neccesary support for the program. Without Cumulus’  passion and interest, as well as The North Eastern Ford Dealers commitment to the community, none of this would be possible.  As Major Elijah Kahn of the Salvation Army of Mahoning County said when speaking of this gift,  ‘The limited resources, the scarce resources that these families have, they can use it to pay their rent, or pay their light bill.  And we can provide these coats so that their children can have something during the winter.’  

What an amazing show of holiday spirit from Cumulus and Ford! Thank you for all you do.
