Impact Radio Group’s KQBL-FM Boise recently helped a veteran in need through their work with local veteran services organization The Tillery Fund. KQBL-FM invites listeners to nominate military families and veterans in need through the “Adopt-A-BULL Family for Christmas” program. This year, they found a medically retired veteran in his early 30s, who is married with three young children and faces a six-month backlog while waiting for disability paychecks. The family relies solely on a wood-burning stove for heat, but they were out of wood. Immediately after KQBL-FM personalities Kevin and Brenda shared his story, they heard that a nearby vacant property had five trees that had already been cut down. The property owner happily agreed to donate the wood. Two days later, 50 volunteers spent four hours to cut and deliver 15 cords of wood, which can keep the family warm for more than two years.
