Entercom raised over $330,000 to provide over 169,000 meals and care to those in need through WCCO-AM's "2020 Union Gospel Mission Hunger Radiothon" in Minneapolis. The amount raised during the 18th annual radiothon, which benefits Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities (UGMTC), brought the overall fundraising total to over $3.3 million since 2003.

"Entercom Minneapolis and 830 WCCO are proud to support the Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities and its local efforts to fight hunger, homelessness and addiction in Minnesota," said Entercom Minneapolis Senior VP/Market Manager Shannon Knoepke. "During this pandemic, I'm incredibly proud of the selflessness and generosity of our listeners who stepped up to help us deliver another successful radiothon."

As part of the radiothon on November 17, 830 WCCO dedicated its entire day of on-air programming to raising money for Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities. Programming from 6am to 7pm CT featured live interviews from UGMTC students and staff, who shared inspirational stories throughout the day.

Founded in 1902, Union Gospel Mission (UGM) is a Christian ministry dedicated to serving people facing homelessness, poverty, or addiction in our community. The mission helps people rebuild their lives by providing safe shelter, nutritious food, medical and dental care, and a broad variety of life-changing programs for children and adults.
