WICC radiothon Friday to benefit Rescue Mission

BRIDGEPORT — WICC 600 will stage an all-day radiothon Thursday, Nov. 8, to help raise money for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.

The radiothon will take place in between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. Listeners will hear Mission students share stories of their struggles and also how the Mission has enabled them to change their lives. Throughout the day, Executive Director Terry Wilcox will share his thoughts on the Mission’s outreach to coastal Fairfield County.

Listeners will have the opportunity to make a contribution in support of Bridgeport Rescue Mission’s efforts to provide food, shelter, clothing and addiction recovery to men, women and children.

The mission plans to distribute 15,000 coats and 3,200 turkeys and fixing bags to local families in need prior to Thanksgiving.

To donate, call the station at 203-333-WICC (203-333-9422) or 1-800-922-6060 during the campaign to make a pledge.
