KIKV-FM and COOL 94.3 will host a Radiothon to End Child Abuse starting on Thursday, December 4 at 1 p.m. and continuing for 23 hours until noon on Friday, December 5. The event is co-sponsored by Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota.
During the 23 hours of broadcast, listeners will have an opportunity to phone in a pledge to help stop child abuse in Minnesota and in their local county. Listeners can designate to which county their money goes.
To make a pledge, call the All State Sprint Pledge Line at 1-877-836-5439. Volunteers will answer phones set up at County Market in Alexandria.
Many human service professionals and community leaders will discuss child abuse prevention and what local resources are available to parents and children. Listeners will hear what has been accomplished in the past to end child abuse and what can be done in the future to prevent it.
After minimal expenses of less than 10 percent, all of the monies raised will remain in Minnesota, split between Prevent Child Abuse Minnesota and local agencies, including the Douglas County Prevention Council, Pope County Help Council, Stevens County Family Well Being Committee, Todd County PEACE Council, and the Grant County Child and Youth Council.
In 2013, KIKV-FM and COOL 94.3 listeners raised more than $40,000 during the Radiothon.
An online auction will also help raise funds. People can bid on more than 50 items and certificates from now through Friday, December 5.
