Activity Supports 94.9 The Point Radiothon to Benefit Children’s Hospital

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. -- Want to be a “Change Bandit” for Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters? Here's your chance! In conjunction with the 94.9 The Point Radiothon, the annual four-day fund-raiser which will broadcast live from the hospital’s lobby Dec. 9-12, the radio station and CHKD are recruiting Change Bandits to rid their co-workers, family and friends of the spare change in their desk drawers, pockets and purses. Traditionally, the “Change Bandit” campaign works best within individual companies or office buildings that house several businesses. On December 7, Change Bandits will travel throughout their building or office collecting spare change for CHKD. The Change Bandits will then turn in their money at the CHKD lobby anytime during the broadcast. Interested participants should fax their name, company and other pertinent information to CHKD at (757) 668-7350 or register online at CHKD will then send out Change Bandit information packets that contain posters, a collection bag and CHKD stickers. For more information, call CHKD Community Relations at (757) 668-7070.
