The entire on-air staff of New Country 92.3 helped make the holidays a little brighter for local children by participating in the Bikes, Balls and Barbies initiative, a toy drive that benefits The Salvation Army. The event was held at West County Center and other area locations, and more than 10,000 toys were collected.
Brinkmann’s employee charity initiative BECAUSE (Brinkmann Employees Care About United Service Efforts) lent a helping paw to veterans and first responders. BECAUSE donated $28,000 to Got Your Six Support Dogs, an organization that provides PTSD service dogs at no cost.
Major kudos to AccuCare! The home health care company was awarded the BBB Torch Award by the Better Business Bureau. The prestigious award honors businesses that demonstrate exemplary ethics and integrate high standards into daily operations.
The South Grand neighborhood received a special holiday visitor— the Grinch. Luckily, the green grump wasn’t there to steal Christmas cheer, but to spread it. Visitors to Ritz Park got their photos taken with the Grinch, and proceeds from the event went to Shriners Hospitals for Children. Merry Grinchmas!
