WDAM Viewpoint- Thanks for your help

APRIL 6, 2011

There are no words to express how proud and thankful we are for the giving spirit of the people of Mississippi.  This Wednesday and Thursday, WDAM partnered with our Raycom sister stations, WLBT in Jackson and WLOX on the Coast and our friends at WTOK-TV in Meridian—along with several radio stations—for a concentrated fund-raising effort.  All the money was donated to the Red Cross to help the victims of the recent tornados in Mississippi.  The 2-day amount was $245,000.  That is phenomenal and will go a long way toward helping our fellow Mississippians in need.  There are so many to thank, but here in the Laurel/Hattiesburg area a special shout out should go to Sanderson Farms who donated a check for $25,000 on the air here at WDAM.  The other markets had big corporate donors as well.  As always, the smaller donations were mounted up to be just as important…and again…we thank you all for your generosity and compassion.  If you didn't give during this event…it is never too late.  The Red Cross and other organizations continue to take contributions to help in this overwhelming need.  Keep the people who lost loved ones in your thoughts and prayers as well.  Nothing can bring them back.  Your gifts can, however, greatly help those who lost so many as entire communities were wiped out.  I'm Jim Cameron and that's today's Viewpoint.
