Earlier this month, FMQB told you about John Stewart, Director of Programming for WDJQ (Q92) & WDPN-AM/Canton, OH, and his efforts to organize a relief mission of victims of Hurricane Sandy. Now Promotion Director Matt Spatz checks in to report that the "Canton Radio Cares" drive raised $17,000 in total for Sandy's victims, as well as five U-Haul trucks full of items headed east.

On Friday, November 9, Canton radio listeners filled the five U-Haul trucks with generators, non-perishable food items, toiletries, clothing, pet food, toys and more. Q92, WHBC (Mix 94.1), WNPQ (The Light 95.9), WHBC-AM and WDPN-AM collectively received approximately $15,000 in cash donations on-site at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. An online auction at the stations' websites raised an additional $2,000. Auction items included autographed guitars from Maroon 5, Linkin Park, P!ink and fun.; a bass autographed by Randy Jackson and Casey Abrams of American Idol; an autographed Katy Perry tour jacket and an autographed Train CD catalog and bottle of the band's "Drops of Jupiter" wine.

The U-Haul trucks departed Canton on Saturday, November 10 and arrived at Long Beach Island, New York on Sunday, November 11 to deliver the goods.

Last Wednesday, November 21, the on air staffs of Q92 and WDPN-AM presented Curt Werren, CEO of the American Red Cross Stark County Regional Chapter, with a check for $17,000.
