In the last four years, Radio Vice Online readers and Sound Off Connecticut listeners have stepped up big-time to support our troops serving overseas. The efforts to send care packages to the troops has been a successful one, but the need continues. Can you support Troopathon 2012?
This past year, we’ve asked a lot from readers when it comes to charity giving, and we’re asking for your help again. Last year, we promoted a month-long effort that raised more than $19,000 used towards care packages. This year, we’ve only got today – one day – to get it done. We know we will not be able to meet last years totals, but every little bit helps.
