Sending holiday cheer to American military personnel is the focus of the next “MTSU On the Record” on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Lee Ann Newton, executive aide of MTSU’s STEM Education Center and creator of “Operation Christmas Care,” will air at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26, and 8 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 2.
Now in its sixth year, Newton’s charity has sent more than 60,000 holiday greeting cards to U.S. service members recovering from wartime injuries.
This year’s goal is 200,000 cards. The deadline to contribute is Pearl Harbor Day, Friday, Dec. 7.
