WBHJ-FM Restore Local Buildings

Topic: Environment

The last Saturday of each month, on-air personality B. Money from WBHJ-FM in Birmingham, Ala., and his listeners head into the community with supplies to clean, paint and restore the beauty of local establishments. The JAMZCorp clean-up crew has donated their time and energy to neighborhoods, parks, schools, churches and community centers. Promotional mentions are run for the two weeks leading up to each of the scheduled clean-up days to recruit and remind the community of WBHJs effort. "The program has meant a whole lot to the entire city of Birmingham," said Pastor Steve Green from the More Than Conquerors Faith Church, who has volunteered with members of his church in the JAMZCorp effort.
