KVLY’s ‘coats’ excuse appallingI was appalled to hear Jim Wareham’s (president/GM for KVLY/KXJB) excuse for KVLY no longer facilitating the “Coats for Kids” program. His reason was “it got to be a burden on our staff last year.” A burden on your staff to assist the Salvation Army help thousands of kids in 47 cities stay warm in North Dakota and Minnesota winters? Let’s not worry about the burden on the struggling parents who know they can’t afford a coat for their child this winter. Let’s just make sure KVLY staff isn’t put out.
There are so many wonderful businesses in the F-M area. I hope one of them will step up in KVLY’s place and participate in helping The Salvation Army organize this so no child has to go without a coat in North Dakota and Minnesota this winter.
