Watch the exciting announcement as it happened on WDEL.WDEL's 8th Annual Feed a Friend breaks the record!
"$17,145 dollars! You WDEL listeners, you are awesome," shouts Rick Jensen.
Thanks to our loyal WDEL listeners, five local shelters will get to go on a shopping spree to feed the needy and the homeless this holiday season.
The Reverend Tom Laymon who runs the Sunday Breakfast Mission, says your donations will go a long way.
"We can do so much by your contribution. The multiplication factor is amazing; it's massive. Hundreds, thousands of lives being turned around and gotten off the streets, despite the recession," Laymon says.
WDEL listeners always come through, and we thank you for it!
"The listeners of WDEL are so generous. We've seen it year after year," he says.
Other beneficiaries of WDEL's Feed a Friend include the YWCA, the Newark Welfare Area Committee, the Emmanuel Dining Room and St. Paul's Outreach Center.
