Kicks Country Listeners Raise More Than $4500 For Upper Cumberland Senior Citizens

Local senior citizens will receive more than $4,500 in food baskets thanks to the generosity of local neighbors Friday.

106-9 Kicks Country and Lite Rock 95.9 partnered with Golden Corral of Cookeville for the Golden Circle Of Giving Breakfast. Thanks to Golden Corral, every cent of the $10 donation went to purchase food items for seniors through the Upper Cumberland Area Agency on Aging and Disability.

Sam’s Club of Cookeville matched the first $1500 in donations from Friday’s breakfast.

The money goes to make and deliver food baskets with Christmas treats and other staples, such as ham, fruit, crackers and stamps, to senior citizens in the Upper Cumberland. The Upper Cumberland Area Agency on Aging and Disability has already delivered some 200 baskets to seniors across the region that can not get out themselves to get the basics they need.

This is the fourth year 106-9 Kicks Country, Lite Rock 95.9 and Stonecom have partnered with Golden Corral to raise money for seniors in need.
