It all started 15 years ago when staff members were talking about opportunities to be of service to the Battle Creek community. For those who need it most. That's when a morning show personality from 104.9 said “Let’s do a roof sit to raise money for the homeless shelter.” So far, the effort has raised over a half-million dollars and, we’re still at it! This year's goal is $60,000.
