CALL NOW: Donate to Angel-A-Thon to honor Dawne Gee

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - What must Christmas be like for children with no gifts under the tree? Hopefully, with your help, not a single child in WAVE Country will find out. 

This year, we ask that you consider giving to the Salvation Army Angel Tree program in honor of WAVE 3 News anchor Dawne Gee. Dawne suffered a stroke in November and has been working hard to return to the anchor desk. She is a tireless community advocate, and because so many of our viewers want to express their love and appreciation for her, Dawne has agreed to ask viewers to give to Angel Tree in her name.

Each year, WAVE 3 News partners with Salvation Army and Kroger to promote and volunteer for Angel Tree. The program provides toys and food to families in need each Christmas. Angel Tree will be highlighted all day today in WAVE 3 News broadcasts, on WAVE Country, Listens Live! and other programming on WAVE 3 News.

Today’s Angel-A-Thon runs from 5 a.m. until 8 p.m. Salvation Army volunteers will accept monetary donations over the phone. Call 502-571-3333 to give. Any amount will help. The money raised will allow Salvation Army to purchase toys, clothes and other items for children whose “angels” were not adopted at area malls.

The fundraising goal for this year Angel-A-Thon is $65,000. Last year, WAVE Country's generous donations surpassed the goal of $60,000. 

Please join us in this effort. Thank you in advance.
