VerStandig Broadcasting’s 101.5 Bob Rocks and 104.7 WAYZ held one-day fundraisers for those affected by the devastating floods in southern and central West Virginia. Each station held 12 hour broadcasts collecting monetary donations for United Way of Central West Virginia and relief items for Shepherd University to deliver to the affected areas. Collectively, the sister stations raised $7,950 and filled three trucks with donations.
Bob Rocks was live from Break Away II Sports Lounge while WAYZ set up at Antrim Way Honda in Greencastle, PA.
“We put this together in two days and our listeners made it happen. We can’t think the community enough for helping us help our neighbors,” said Promotions Director Stacey Haynes (aka Nasty Bob on the Bob Rocks Morning Show).
Several local businesses made donations to the cause including Hafers Gunsmithing, Greencastle Lube Center, Hagerstown TEA Party, and Shiley Acres. Antrim Way Honda made a promise to donate $500 for every car sold during the broadcast.
Shepherd University will continue to collect items at the Wellness Center until July 15. Donations can be made to the Emergency Flood Fund at www.unitedwaycwv.org.
