West Michigan: Newsmakers Jan. 9, 2009




Battle Creek Enquirer:

Jerry Lewis will not be there. Nor will acrobats or ventriloquists. Instead, hosts of the "Caring for Kids" phone-a-thon Tuesday on WWMT NewsChannel 3 will ask parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends of children without health insurance to call in from 5 a.m. to midnight. Local health officials will volunteer to answer the phones in an attempt to find families who qualify for MIChild, a government-sponsored health plan for low-income families in Michigan. "We're not asking for money. We're not asking for donations," said Mark Bishop, WWMT marketing director. "We're asking people to get their kids signed up for the health care they need"... WWMT phone-a-thon to help families, kids (Fri, 1/9)
