Spirit of Giving Food Drive


Carroll Broadcasting encourages you to host your own giving effort at work, church or your organization. In the past listeners have held food, clothing and toy drives but anything you think would be helpful at this time of year is welcome!

At the end of the drive, we’ll help deliver your donations. As a way to say thank you for your generosity, KCIM/KKRL & KIKD will broadcast live from your office or business to highlight the generosity of your co-workers and commitment to supporting our local families. Listen for our “Spirit Of Giving” features all through the holiday season.

It is totally up to you to pick who you will donate to and what you would like to donate. Our goal is to make the holidays brighter for everyone here in our area and to show the tremendous generosity of people here in our area.

Tell us about your drive and we will help spread the word on all three of our radio stations free of charge throughout the holiday season. From everyone here at Carroll Broadcasting, we wish you and your family the best this holiday season.

  • Tell us who you are collecting for, how long have you done this, and other information.
