Wear Red wraps up with $3,000 for military organizations | Community Spirit
Throughout the summer you wore red with us here at KXLY and alongside Global Credit Union to raise money for local military organizations. Wear Red wrapped up on September 11th , and Global Credit Union is excited to share that your efforts raised $3,820.
From Memorial Day to September 11th, Global, KXLY and Spokane joined together by wearing red every Friday in support of our local military community. Global also accepted donations and sold Wear Red t-shirts for the following military organizations:
- Operations Spokane Heroes
- Columbia Basin Veteran's Coalition
- Disabled American Veterans Chapter 9
- Aviano's Friends of Family
- Vicenza's Army Emergency Relief
- Darby's Army Emergency Relief
“We are honored that Global has chosen us as one of the recipients of the Wear Red Campaign this year,” said Sandy Kates, Chair of Operation Spokane Heroes. “This money is especially important as it will be used to help those military families in our region that are in need.”
KXLY's sister station, KVEW, and the Tri-Cities community also participated in Wear Red this year.
