          “Kids 2 Kids Christmas” Aims to Collect over 10,000 Toys for Less Fortunate Children

Milwaukee, Wis. – Newsradio 620 WTMJ invites listeners to participate in the third annual “Kids 2 Kids Christmas”
campaign this holiday season, presented by Kapco Metal Stampings and Fabrications and sponsored by Piggly Wiggly.
Inspired by afternoon drive host Jonathan Green and his desire to instill the spirit of giving in children during the holiday
season, “Kids 2 Kids Christmas” is a call to all parents to take their kids shopping to select and purchase toys for kids who
are less fortunate. The toys will then be distributed to children in Southeastern Wisconsin through The Salvation Army.
Last year, more than 8,000 toys were collected through “Kids 2 Kids Christmas.”

The “Kids 2 Kids Christmas” campaign runs November 24 – December 19, and will feature three toy collection events
where listeners may drop off their toys with Newsradio 620 WTMJ, Kapco Metal Stampings and Fabrications, Piggly
Wiggly and The Salvation Army.
         Friday, December 5th – 12-8 p.m. – 2201 East Rawson Ave. in Oak Creek, at the WTMJ Chevrolet Road
            Show. WTMJ personalities Jeff Wagner, Jonathan Green, Phil Cianciola, and Bill Michaels will broadcast
            live from the event.
         Saturday, December 13th – 9 a.m.-1 p.m. – Kapco Metal Stampings and Fabrications, 1000 Badger Circle,
            Grafton. WTMJ personalities will be on-site to greet listeners and accept their donations.
         Friday, December 19th – 12-8 p.m. – Piggly Wiggly, W61 N286 Washington Ave. in Cedarburg, at the
