Radio M*A*S*H helps give kids a brighter holiday

In Memory of George G. S. Sluppick

Everyone’s childhood is filled with the anticipation of Christmas morning. The inability to sleep on Christmas Eve, even though parents warn that Santa won’t come when they’re awake. The waiting to open presents on Christmas morning until the adults wake up and drink their coffee. The excitement to tear into the multitude of shiny gifts, topped with bows and filled with Christmas wishes.

Unfortunately, there are many children that go without presents. This is where Radio M*A*S*H comes in. The 21st annual Radio M*A*S*H event, which stands for “Make A Smile Happen,” will be held Dec. 8-10 at the Natchitoches Walmart.

Wanting to ensure that there are toys under the tree for every boy and girl in Natchitoches Parish, Radio M*A*S*H supports the Natchitoches Jaycees annual toy drive. Elite Radio Group, along with local individuals, businesses and organizations will work together to gather toys and make a smile happen for children in the community.

The event is a 54-hour marathon broadcast on all Elite Radio Group radio stations. Listen to the broadcast from noon on Thursday, Dec. 8 until 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10 for constant updates.

Drop by the tent in the Walmart parking lot to make a toy or monetary donation. Challenge others to match your gift.

Together, we can Make A Smile Happen this Christmas.
