New Country KSCS 96.3 morning show, Hawkeye in the Morning, concluded the second annual 10,000 for the Troops holiday card drive to send warm, hopeful wishes to the brave men and women serving our country overseas this holiday season.
The station has partnered with Support Our Soldiers, a local 501(c)(3) organization, to send the holiday cards to “high risk” units/individuals that are either in isolated areas or do not have support coming from home.
The campaign kicked off November 2, 2020 with the goal of collecting 10,000 cards. Listeners and supporters were able to mail cards to the radio station or deliver them to the T-Mobile Experience Store at The Shops at Legacy in Plano, TX or any of the Dallas/Fort Worth Gigi’s Cupcakes and Sun & Ski Sports store locations.
The station’s Mark “Hawkeye” Louis took lead on this campaign and announced today that the station collected 46,751 cards, with more cards expected to arrive in the mail over the next week.
"We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support that our listeners showed for our troops serving overseas. It was a much-needed feel good story for 2020," comments Louis on the success of the campaign.
The cards will be included in care packages sent to the Troops by Support Our Soldiers just in time for Christmas.
