Operation Paper Drive 2014

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

The 2014 Mix 104.1 Family Expo will be held on Aug. 9 at the Cleveland Family YMCA. "The purpose of the event is to create a stronger, more connected community," officials stated.

"Because education is and has always been the foundational cornerstone of the community and its development, Mix 104.1 has partnered with Cleveland Insurance to deepen the impact the event has on the community and its development through education."

During the Mix 104.1 Family Expo, Cleveland Insurance will host the first ever Operation Paper Drive by collecting notebook, loose leaf and copy paper for the elementary students and teachers of Cleveland and Bradley County.

Each individual that donates paper during this cause will get to decide which of the local high schools they would like to donate the paper in the name of. The PTO of the high school that has the most paper donated in their name will receive $1,000 from Cleveland Insurance and Mix 104.1 WCLE.

Once the paper is collected, it will be given to the Bradley County and City of Cleveland School's Central Office's so it may distributed to the elementary schools in most need of these resources.

Don't Squander The 2016 Election Opportunity

This is what I don't understand. Christians refusing to vote for anyone who is not squeaky clean and who doesn't live up to our standards. I'm not bashing Christians. I proudly proclaim Jesus as Lord and Savior.  But If we made our voice known more we could have a lot greater influence than we have. And I don't mean just boycotting. I specifically mean the last two ... (click for more)
