On Friday, June 19, Barbera Autoland participated in Radio 102.9 WMGK's Radiothon to support the Veterans Multi-Service Center (VMC). The event took place from 6 am until 6 pm at the National Constitution Center on Independence Mall. Along with receiving donations from listeners, the event featured local and national celebrities who called and stopped in to be part of the show.
With donations from local businesses, including Barbera Autoland, the radiothon raised $190,321. Barbera Autoland donated $3,000 to the event, and listeners were encouraged to make additional donations to match what we donated. At the end of the day, we were proud to support an amazing organization that helps more than 3,000 veterans and families annually.
Iconic morning show host John DeBella started the radiothon nine years ago because he wanted to use his audience's power to help veterans in the Philadelphia region get the support they desperately need.
About the VMC
The VMC serves the veterans of the greater Philadelphia region. Along with providing approximately 175,000 meals to veterans in need, the VMC helps veterans find clothes and other basic living necessities, including furniture; acquire affordable housing; get in to career training programs; get job placement; and file for their VA benefits.
Along with all of the work that the VMC does directly for veterans, the US Department of Veterans Affairs selected the VMC to be a mentor and guide for other non-profit agencies that focus on veterans. The VMC's reputation for excellence and years of experience are just two reasons the organization was chosen.
