The Mighty 1090 hosted the 4th Annual Clean Your Drawers Holiday Clothing Drive Friday morning, December 20th, 2013 from 6:00am to 6:00pm. Sports fans from all over San Diego were invited to bring their new or gently used clothing donations to the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery Mission Valley benefiting San Diego Alpha Project.
All clothing donations will go to Alpha Project, which attempts to develop relationships with the homeless; offering them food, water, clothing, hygiene supplies, transportation assistance as well as a compassionate ear. Alpha Project CEO Bob McElroy joined Hacksaw & Company LIVE on air at 8:45am to talk about the needs of San Diego's homeless during the cold months of the year.
Bud Light graciously donated a delivery truck to house the donations for the clothing drive and deliver them to Alpha Project, downtown. Vice President of Marketing for Bud Light San Diego James Dierker will deliver the truck and the clothes on behalf of Anheuser-Busch.
"Clean Your Drawers started four years ago as a sock drive with Scott & BR. The response from generous San Diegans was overwhelming. To see it develop into an annual community event to help San Diego's homeless during the holidays is a feat that we are proud of at The Mighty 1090," says Broadcast Company of the Americas General Manager Norman Feuer.
Geena the Latina of Channel 933 and San Diego Charger Shareece Wright co-hosted an event on Saturday, November 9, for the After School All-Star Program in National City. The program is aimed at kids in underserved communities and encourages them to stay out of trouble by staying active in sports and studies.
South Bay Volkswagen made the event possible by donating jerseys, soccer balls, and water bottles to the 300 kids in the program.
The kids had a pep rally before their games where Shereece and Geena talked to them about the importance of education and athletics. They delivered all the soccer balls in two V-Dubs from South Bay Volkswagen. The kids were excited and grateful. Last year, they didn't even have uniforms.
The mission of After-School All-Stars (ASAS) is to provide comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and life. ASAS serves over 92,000 low-income, at-risk youth at nearly 400 Title I schools in 14 major cities across the country -- from New York to Hawaii.
