This week two major radio corporations are featuring an Entire Day dedicated to helping Star of Hope make this a Summer of Hope for our clients.
Thursday, June 28, beginning at 6 AM until 7 PM, Clear Channel’s top rated SUNNY 99.1 will run commercials talking about Star of Hope’s summer efforts and asking listeners to go to our website and make a donation. As an added blessing, Houston Area Toyota Dealers are giving their support to our Summer of Hope campaign by generously matching gifts up to $15,000! This is a great chance to DOUBLE your donation. Star of Hope commercials will also run on KTRH 740 and KPRC 950 radio.
Friday, June 29 is an entire Day Of Hope on Cox Broadcasting’s 93Q Country and 97.1 Legends. Staring at 6 AM until 7 PM each radio station will run Star of Hope commercials and have large banners on their websites giving listeners a chance to support us.
Most people don’t realize that in the summer Star of Hope has more homeless men, women and children in our shelters than at any other time of the year. Reasons for this include: the extreme heat, an increase in domestic violence, more mouths to feed because children are out of school and loss of jobs. We turn no one away – and we want to try and keep it that way. Visit your favorite radios stations’ websites or go to sohmission.org to help us make this a Summer of Hope for Houston’s homeless.
