We recently held my "Birthday Turkey Giveaway" and it was a blessing to be a blessing to so many in East Texas but while most of our turkeys went out to folks in the Tyler area, one went to a listener in Longview who said that my gesture inspired him to want to give back as well.

My Man Tracy Said "Let's Do A Coat Drive"

Tracy received a free turkey from me and told me that he felt inspired to give back himself so he reached out to his pastor at Union Church Of Christ in Easton, TX and a few business owners in Longview so we can do something to help the kids stay warm this winter. If you remember during last winter, we saw kids in "hoodies" and "light jackets" that barely kept them warm so we're calling on the Longview community to help out!

I'll be broadcasting live from RNR Tires Express in Longview on December 18th and on the same day we will distribute coats to kids in need. Keep it locked on details on where we will be giving them out. We really appreciate your help and support. Thank you in advance!
