Here to Help - MIX 101.5

HELP the HELPERS! Thank you!

It’s time to HELP the HELPERS! As part of our ongoing “Here to Help” community initiative, MIX 101.5 teamed up with United Way for a virtual fundraiser. With your help we were able to raise over $645,000! THANK YOU! If you’d still like to donate to the Rapid Response Fund, you can! They provide immediate funding to MANY nonprofits who are working the frontlines of our community and experiencing an increased demand for critical resources like food, childcare and housing due to COVID-19. You can search “Here To Help” at wral.com or text “RAPID” to (919) 860-1015! Thank you to all who lend a helping hand!

DONATE PPE 

Staples is partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® to collect personal protective equipment (PPE) for member children’s hospitals across the United States. Donations of new, unused, unopened personal protective equipment such as N95 respirator face masks, disposable face masks, face-shields, eye protective wear, isolation or surgical gowns can be dropped off at participating Staples locations.

Donations will be shipped to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to help caregivers in your community. Protective gear is essential to ensuring the safety of hospital workers who are caring for the most vulnerable patients at children’s hospitals.

Kids can’t wait, and you can help. Thank you for your generosity.

 

HELP MUSICIANS

 If our local rockers, rappers and music makers ever needed their fans, it’s now.  Click to make a donation that will help them through the shutdown. And ensure that, once this is behind us, the local live musicians we love will be preforming in front of us.
