The Kitchen Hopes 2nd Annual Phone-A-Thon Will Dial Up $10,000

- Some of you may be getting a call soon to help provide a hot meal to seniors in the Wichita Falls Meals on Wheels program.

The Kitchen is hosting its second annual Phone-A-Thon.

Ten teams of five people will call family, friends and co-workers to make $5 donation, which would cover the cost of one meal for a client in the Meals on Wheels program.

Last year's goal was to raise $5,000 and coordinators say $21,000 was raised in just two hours.

So this year, they are setting the bar higher.

"We've set a goal of $10,000 so I know we'll be able to meet that. I have no doubt we'll exceed it," says Jackie Riley, director of marketing and development for The Kitchen.

The team that raises the most money will receive the Golden Phone Award.

The Phone A Thon is from 6 to 8 p.m., tonight.

Coordinators say if you don't receive a call you can still donate by either stopping by The Kitchen at 1000 Burnett Street in Wichita Falls or call (940) 322-6232.
