Give 4 the Holidays
KOB 4 is making it easy for YOU to GIVE 4 THE HOLIDAYS!
What is better than giving a gift at the holidays? How about giving a gift to someone who really needs help in these tough times?
That’s what you can do during the month of December during GIVE 4 THE HOLIDAYS on KOB 4, a partnership with 4 local charities to raise money with a series of donation hotlines – all aimed at helping New Mexico children and families.
Every Thursday from 5 p.m.-7 p.m., KOB 4 will host a GIVE 4 THE HOLIDAYS hotline to benefit one of the charities. The number to call will be announced at 5 p.m. on each Thursday.
GIVE 4 THE HOLIDAYS Hotline: Dec. 22: 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
