MIX 101.5 Collecting Bottled Water for Troops Traveling in North Carolina
Radio Station Collecting Water for ‘Operation Hydration’
MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM will be collecting bottled water on Friday, May 22, 2009, between 6 am and 1 pm for ‘Operation Hydration’ which provides water for troops traveling through RDU Airport.
Donations of bottled water and monetary contributions can be dropped off at
- 5715 Glenwood Avenue, at the intersection of Glenwood Avenue and Fairhill Drive in Raleigh.
MIX 101.5 will be broadcasting live during the collection encouraging people to stop by with their donation. Listeners can also donate online at wralfm.com.
‘Operation Hydration’ is being conducted by MIX 101.5 and the AT&T Pioneers. The bottled water will be distributed through the USO of North Carolina at the RDU Center. The RDU Center averages over 2,000 troops per month that use the services while traveling through RDU airport.
The USO of North Carolina is sole supporting: neither USO Headquarters in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Government, nor the Department of Defense, provide any funding. The mission of the USO of North Carolina is to enhance the quality of life of U.S. Armed Forces personnel and their families within our geographic boundaries, and to create a cooperative relationship between U.S. military communities and the supporting civilian communities.
