Holiday Heroes 12/10/2018

From the firefighter, to the police officer, to the soldier, their job is to help our community and our nation through difficult situations. As the holiday season approaches, their commitment to our community and nation remains steadfast. 

This holiday season, WRBL will be joining forces with our Hometown Heroes, Santa’s Castle, The Valley Rescue Mission of Columbus and Harvest Evangelism of Opelika to collect toys, coats, shoes, and blankets to distribute throughout the Chattahoochee Valley. 

On average, *23% of the population in nine counties throughout the region live in poverty. (Nine Counties include Muscogee and Russell County) 

WRBL’s Holiday Heroes will not only bring needed attention to this plight, but with your help we can bring a smile to a child’s face with the gift of a toy and the added warmth and protection that comes from the gift of coats, shoes, and blankets to families in need during seasonally cold months. 

First Responders, Santa’s Castle, the Valley Rescue Mission of Columbus, Harvest Evangelism of Opelika and You, our sponsor, are responding to the call to spread a little joy and warmth across the valley.

All event times are 11:30 am – 6:30 pm Eastern.
