Area Children Will Have A Memorable Christmas, Thanks To YOU!

‘Tis the season of giving and the DMV definitely did that! Whenever we made the call, you showed up and showed out and for that, WE THANK YOU! Despite the cold rain, our WHUR listeners came out Annual Children’s Toy Drive in a big way Saturday to make sure hundreds of youth in the DMV will have a joyous Christmas.

Michel Wright broadcasted live from The Shops At Iverson. Taylor Thomas os WHUR’s News Team stopped by as well. We want to give a special thank you to The Hamiltones who took the time out of their busy schedule to spread some holidays by stopping by, singing, and making a special donation of their very own.

We would also like to say thank you to the Bill Lawrence Salon, Top Flight Corvette Club, Unity Thunder and our wonderful WHUR listeners. We could not have done this without you.

In addition to over 1,000 toys being donated, we also received bikes, games, PS4 Playstation, skateboards, dolls, video games, gift cards, cash, clothing, shoes, educational resources, and sporting gear.

All the items collected will go to the following organizations:

SE Tennis and Learning Center
Howard University Hospital WIC Program
Garfield Elementary School in SE
YMCA of Metropolitan Washington
Shepherd’s Cove Shelter in Prince George’s County

WHUR will host a party Monday at Howard University Hospital to give away some of the toys and another party Thursday at the SE Tennis and Learning Center.

Once again, THANK YOU so much for your generosity this holiday season. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
