On Tuesday, October 12, Cumulus Nashville’s five radio stations (Classic Hits 97.1 RQQ, 95.5 The Wolf, i106 All the Hits, SuperTalk 99.7 WTN and 92Q), will go commercial free from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM to raise money for the Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity (NAHFH).
NAHFH invests in people and property, converting renters to homeowners through mortgage education, financial planning, and zero-rate home loans, providing life-changing assistance and breaking the cycle of poverty “one home, one family, one community at a time.” Listeners will be encouraged to donate money and/or time to “Build a Better Nashville” by providing assistance to the charity during the radiothon. Donations can be made by calling 615-312-3535 or online at www.habitatnashville.org.
Ninety-three percent of NAHFH’s annual budget is derived from private donations. Monies raised will stay local and support the Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity organization. NAHFH is ranked in the top one percent of Habitat for Humanity International Affiliates in the world. Its communities have also received the 2010 Energy Star Award for Sustained Excellence, providing lower energy costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
“Cumulus Nashville is proud to support an organization that is not only charitable, but one that demonstrates this level of excellence,” states Mark Sullivan, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Cumulus Nashville. “The Nashville Area Habitat for Humanity plays a vital role in bettering the community in which we live and work.”
