KISS 104FM Hosts Radiothon to Benefit Hosea Helps
ATLANTA, GA – June 29, 2017 -KISS 104.1 (WALR-FM/Atlanta) announced that they will hold a KISS-A-THON on July 7, 2017 to benefit Hosea Helps.
For over four decades, Hosea Helps resided at 1035 Donnelly Avenue in Southwest Atlanta. Due to rising rents, Hosea Helps must leave its current location and needs to raise $600,000 to help with purchasing, moving and closing costs for their new home. The new location will be larger allowing them to expand their outreach programs and continue their mission – helping people in need.
On July 7, KISS 104.1 will ask listeners, partners and sponsors to aid Hosea Helps by donating to in our one-day KISS-A-THON. Supporters will have four ways to donate on July 7, by phone or text from 6:00am-7:00pm, in person at the Fulton County Atrium from 9:00am-3:00pm where KISS 104.1’a Sasha The Diva and Art Terrell will be broadcasting live, or online at gofundme.com/4Hosea now.
Imagine what Atlanta would be without Hosea Helps:
15,000 Georgia seniors would not receive hot meals.
121 families will go homeless.
2,000 children would not have school supplies or toys for Christmas.
2,800 families would not have vital health screenings and preventative health care services.
21,000 families would be without nutritious food.
2,000 orphans in Uganda would be without food and housing.
700 children in our school in the Philippines would lose access to education K-12.
Countless number of homeless citizens would freeze in the winter along with hundreds of seniors would not have heat.
9,000 volunteers would lose the opportunity to give back to the greater Atlanta community.
Hosea Helps is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization – donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. All donations will be used solely for the purchase, moving expenses and costing cost for the new warehouse.
CEO, Elisabeth Omilami, daughter of civil rights activist, Rev. Hosea Williams says, “My father always said, “We build the path as we can, rock by rock.” Thank you so much for your support. Thousands of the less fortunate in Atlanta thank you for being our rock and helping us continue our path.”
