Beasley Media Group Detroit has announced that WDMK-FM (Detroit) Weekend On Air Host Mildred Gaddis teamed up with McDonald’s, UAW and The EMG Foundation to present the 2020 Drive-Thru Bed in a Bag Radiothon to raise over $40,000 to provide sleeping bags for the homeless.
The two-hour event was held at the McDonalds located at 1000 Mack Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. Local community leaders made socially distanced appearances throughout the broadcast to help Mildred to encourage listeners to drive thru and drop off donations.
Gaddis, host of the Mildred Gaddis Show, heard Sunday mornings on 105.9 KISS-FM in the Motor City, dedicated her entire show last weekend to raising funds to provide sleeping bags for the homeless. “I believe no matter who we are, the fact that we exist demands and requires that we serve humanity,” said Gaddis.
The sleeping bags will be distributed throughout Martin Luther King Weekend in January by Mildred and her team of volunteers.
“Reaching out to help those in our community who are struggling has tremendous impact, especially in our world today,” said Beasley Media Group-Detroit Director of Programming, Scott Jameson. “We are blessed to have someone of Mildred’s commitment and high character to make a significant difference.”
