Thousands of Dollars Raised for Veterans at Fayetteville VA Hospital

News

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — For the third year in a row, a local radio duo is making the holidays a little bit brighter for veterans.

3B Radio, in partnership with Sam’s Club and several local businesses, raised more than $5,000 Thursday to hand out gifts to over 500 veterans at the VA hospital in Fayetteville. 

“Veterans came through today and got to pick through the things that they needed, and some stuff was fun like coloring books and games and some candy and stuff,” said Jen Cole, a volunteer. “But, a lot of it again was stuff they really need, so without the donations that the community gives, this wouldn’t be possible every year.”

3B radio hope to give even more to veterans next year.
