WLQV helps kids get back to school
In partnership with the international Christian relief organization Feed the Children, Christian Talk WLQV AM 1500 held a day long drive in Thursday, August 16 asking their listeners to provide backpacks filled with school supplies for 400 homeless inner-city children in the city of Detroit for just $18.00 each. At the end of the day the station had raised more than $14,000 and provided nearly 800 of the backpacks, double the original goal, which will be distributed to the students in Detroit when the new school year begins after Labor Day.
