Back to School Bucks Receives Surprise Donation

Together with sister station Greatest Hits 98.1, our annual Back to School Bucks drive is focusing on securing healthy meals and computer technology for locals kids this year.

That caught the attention of the Chippewa Valley Information Technology Professionals group, prompting President, Scott Funk to reach out to us. And on Friday, Greatest Hits 98.1's John Murphy and I were honored to meet Treasurer, Dan Kronenberg (pictured, left), as he presented us with a donation of over $2,222.

Along with our sponsors, we appreciate this generous donation. Anything you can spare for the kids will help, as our program goes into its final weekend. Thanks to all!


UPS Honors Local Drivers with Family Day

The local UPS distribution center in Altoona honored its drivers Friday morning with Family Day, a way for friends and families to show support and thank the company's drivers.

Dozens did just that, making signs and cheering for drivers as they started their routes. The Altoona Fire Department dropped by to give kids (and a few big kids) tours of a fire engine. Since we're literally their neighbors, our Midwest Family Eau Claire radio staff and WEAU 13 News were invited to drop by as well.

But if you're expecting a delivery today, don't worry. We stayed out of the way and the trucks all rolled out on time!
