The 9th annual radiothon for St. Margaret’s House was a huge success when it came to raising money for the tiny agency which serves hundreds of women every week in downtown South Bend.
The radiothon, which began at 5 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18, wrapped up just after 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 19, with more than $57,000 collected. The donations came from 95.3 MNC listeners, as well as local businesses.
St. Margaret’s House is a day center at 117 N. Lafayette Blvd. in South Bend that welcomes women who live in economic poverty.
With the help of dozens of volunteers, the leaders of St. Margaret’s House provide meals, address immediate needs, and help women acquire skills through programs, such as Bridges Out Of Poverty, Steps For Success and Parenting.
They provide a community of support and help the women who come to St. Margaret’s House take concrete steps forward to a better life.
Anybody who missed the radiothon, but would still like to donate can do so online at the St. Margaret’s House website.
