WGTS 91.9 Helps Kick Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign for Washington, D.C.
(Washington, D.C.) – On Tuesday, Nov. 14, the entire WGTS 91.9 team spread out to almost a dozen locations across the greater Washington, D.C., region to help the 2023 Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign for a holiday Hands and Heart project. Staffers donned holiday headbands and other festive attire to ring the bells for the army. All the money collected goes to the Salvation Army’s programs that feed the hungry, house the homeless, provide heat to those who need it, help those with addictions, and other community outreach programs.
“Getting out from behind the microphone and into the community energizes us,” says WGTS Morning Show Host Summer Shepherd. “Giving back, hugging and praying with listeners, and providing an opportunity for listeners to give generously to a local organization is one thing that sets WGTS apart. It is such an honor to link arms with the Salvation Army.”
Major Todd Mason is the area commander for the National Capital Area Command of the Salvation Army. He says, “Working with WGTS 91.9 is very special to the Salvation Army, as we can share our Christian values with so many people across the DMV. We are so thankful to have the opportunity to share our iconic Red Kettle Campaign to an audience who aligns perfectly with our mission. Thank you, WGTS 91.9, and to all your listeners for making our day of ringing a huge success.”
