Atlanta, (WAOK)-V-103, WAOK and State Farm teamed up with Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless at two Kroger locations (3479 Memorial Dr., Decatur; 950 Herrington Rd., Lawrenceville) Tuesday to fight against hunger and poverty as communities around the world approach the holiday season.
And by the end of the 14-hour effort, comedian Joe Clair had stopped by in Lawrenceville before his Uptown Comedy Corner performances; Shawty Lo unloaded a Cadillac of canned goods and turkeys in Decatur; B.o.B. marked his birthday by donating a $10,000 check
while hundreds of listeners who don’t get invited to the Grammys – included a 9-year-old named Sequoiua, who said she was homeless, but STILL donated $1.12 – added to the food collection boxes in the front of the stores, and the financial bottom line of Hosea Feed The Hungry & Homeless.
HERE IS AN UPDATE on the amount raised.
From Elizabeth Omilami: Yesterday was a greatday. It was a day that we will remember for a long, long time. Thank you so much to the V103 and WAOK staff for their hard work and dedication to making something happen for Hosea Feed The Hungry. And, boy did something happen !
GRAND TOTAL $28,026.00 !
