Audacy raised over $365,000 to provide over 186,000 meals and care to those in need through WCCO-AM's 19th annual "Union Gospel Mission Hunger Radiothon" in Minneapolis. The amount raised during the 19th radiothon, which benefits Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities (UGMTC), brought the overall fundraising total to over $3.6 million since 2003.

"I couldn't be prouder of everyone's hard work on this event," said 830 WCCO Brand Manager Brad Lane. "This is yet another great example of how live and local radio can truly help change lives. We're so grateful that WCCO can partner with UGM and impact the community in such an amazing and rewarding day."

As part of the radiothon, the station broadcast live from UGM's St. Paul campus on November 16 from 6am to 7pm CT. Station hosts spoke with current and past Union Gospel Mission clients, as well as staff members and the charity's leaders.

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.
