Have you found yourself thinking more about others lately? That’s what we’re supposed to do this time of year as the Christmas holiday approaches.
Of course we’re think of the many who have lost homes and property in the fires this month here in Southern California and in the ones earlier this year in Northern California.
And of course we’re also thinking about those who are homeless, poor and in need of the things that most of us take for granted. Things such as food and toys for the kids for Christmas.
And that’s why what’s happening the next two days that you’ve been hearing about here on the radio is so important.
You have the opportunity not only to think about others but to do something to help them.
Tomorrow it’s the iHeart Holiday Food Drive at SDCCU Stadium where KOGO and all of our stations will be urging you to drive by and help us collect food or money for food to help the thousands of people who the San Diego Food Bank wants and needs to help. It starts at 6 tomorrow morning and goes till 3 in the afternoon.
And then on Saturday, you can help the Salvation Army collect toys to help several thousand kids in the East County whose families don’t have the money to spend much on toys. LaDona, Ted, Cal and I will be broadcasting live from the El Cajon Target store parking lot starting at 9 o’clock Saturday morning. And we hope you can bring a new unwrapped toy or two.
We all know the joy of giving. And all of us here at KOGO hope you can help us the next couple of days to bring joy to others.
