Community Involved Beyond Words....

I have never worked for a radio station that is sooo community involved than 97.1 QMG...BUT WHAT'S EVEN BETTER is working for a station where the LISTENERS are the REAL STARS of the show!! Case in point the week of our 97.1 Q-mmunity Giving Tour...December 7th-10th, where we were all over the Triad at homeless shelters, adult mental health facilities and even watching first-hand as you gave in such a generous manner donations of blood as the holiday is just one time of year that blood donations are so greatly needed. Whatever the need...it has been YOU that have gone above and beyond the call of duty to give back to those in need, and maybe perhaps keeping thoughts in the back of your mind, that one day, ANYDAY, it could be you! And one day will ALWAYS stand out in my mind...QMG accepting donations of supplies that are greatly needed to aid the Bethesda Center for the Homeless in Winston-Salem, which helps transition men and women and even children from homelessness to housing. Well just as we were about the wrap up our broadcast one special individual just walked up and stated that he wanted to donate a check and further went on to say that it wasn't much, but wanted to contribute nonetheless...that check once Joseph, Phil Allen and myself took a closer look, turned out to be a total of four hundred dollars!! But I don't want to just concentrate on the dollar amount, because ANY donation is priceless..but the concept of GIVING is what seemed to touch his heart the most...and that best decribes EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU who have given from the bottom of your hearts...words can't begin to say how I LOVE OUR QMG LISTENERS who really are Q-mmunity involved! Bless you all not just during the holiday season, but each and everyday!!
