Beasley Media Group’s95.7 BEN FM is pleased to announce the return of the station’s annual Adopt A Family Radio-thon to benefit local families in need this holiday season. The broadcast will take place from 6am to 6pm on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at the Beasley Media Group Philadelphia studios.
Station Morning Host Kristen Herrmann will be joined by celebrity guests as they encourage listeners to make a donation to assist Volunteers of America Delaware Valley’s Adopt A Family Program in purchasing meals, clothing and gifts for hundreds of less fortunate families in their shelters and in the surrounding community.
Prizes and incentives will be offered throughout the 12-hour Radio-thon to encourage donations. Funds collected during last year’s event assisted more than 900 local families. The station hopes to raise even more crucial donations this year.
“Each year, our Adopt A Family program helps local families and children across the Delaware Valley region have the magical and special holiday they deserve,” said Daniel L. Lombardo, President and CEO of Volunteers of America Delaware Valley. “Through our strong partnerships with 95.7 BEN FM and 6ABC year after year, we are able to assist more people in need, engage with those within our communities looking to support our efforts or lend a helping hand and make a lasting difference in the lives of so many during this season of giving. This is what the holiday season is all about. It is not just about the toys, clothing and other material things – it is about giving the gifts of wonder, joy and, most importantly, hope to those in need within our communities.”
