This Morning on Taking it to the Streets

This morning on our “Taking it to the Streets, Weekend Haps” there are two huge events taking place and we are focusing on helping those in need.

Virginia Blood Services (VBS), WHUR, Howard University Hospital, and the Howard Center on Sickle Cell are teaming up for a blood drive Saturday, February 28th from 11am to 4pm. There will be food, prizes and a special appearance by “Junior” from the Steve Harvey Morning Show. For more information, go to

Our “Helping Hands” Radiothon is Sunday, March 1st from 6am to 6pm. We are collecting money to send 450 students to communities across the country and to Haiti to render service to those in need. It’s all part of Howard’s Alternative Spring Break Program (ASB).

On Sunday, March 1st, our SunTrust volunteers will be on hand to take your phone donation or you can drop by the radio station and the Howard University students will be outside along Georgia Avenue, NW to take your donation.
