Alpha Media, Saginaw is proud to announce that WSGW-AM/FM raised $53,250 with their radiothon held on December 21. Money donated will go towards 1,775 nights of hope and care at the Rescue Ministries of Mid-Michigan. Rescue Ministries has homeless shelters in both Saginaw and Bay City, and, combined they house over 200 people per night including men, women and children.

Alpha Media, Saginaw Operations Manager and WSGW Program Director, Dave Maurer commented on the announcement,” This was our eleventh year for our radiothon and the highest we had ever raised before was $42,000. We thought the $45,000 goal might be a bit ambitious, but went ahead. We were blown away when our audience contributed $53,250! Homelessness is a never-ending issue and this money will certainly be put to good use, providing a hand up to those having a difficult time.”
