760 WJR hosts The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit’s 33rd Annual Bed & Bread Club Radiothon, presented by Ford Motor Company Fund. Help us fight hunger and homelessness in our community. This year, The Salvation Army’s fundraising goal of $1.5 million will help the nonprofit continue serving nearly 1.3 million meals and providing nearly 118,000 nights of shelter throughout the year.
The event will kick off at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 27 allowing supporters a head start to help the nonprofit provide meals and shelter to those in need. Night owls can be one of the first to donate to the Radiothon and follow The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to learn about the Bed & Bread program. News/Talk 760 WJR will share success stories and Radiothon donation information to those tuning in overnight.
Then, at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, February 28 we’ll go live from One Campus Martius in the heart of Detroit. The Radiothon lineup will feature:
Paul W. Smith: 6 – 10 a.m.
Frank Beckmann and Steve Courtney: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Mitch Albom: 2 – 4 p.m.
Guy Gordon and Dick Purtan: 4 – 7 p.m.
Jim Vella, Salvation Army Metro Detroit advisory board member and retired president of Ford Motor Company Fund, will return for the fourth straight year as the Radiothon corporate champion and join the WJR hosts throughout the day.

A donation of $120 will help feed five people for nearly a month. Those doubling their generosity to $240 will provide meals to 10 people and receive a polar-fleece neck gaiter (neck warmer) for supporting The Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread program. For a $255 donation, an extra neck gaiter will be donated to one of the Bed & Bread clients to keep them warm during the brutal, Michigan winter.
