On June 21 and 22, Townsquare Media’s WBCK-FM/WBXX-FM (Battle Creek) held their 13th Roofsit event to fund Haven Of Rest’s Inasmuch House for the Homeless.
The goal was to raise $70,000 this year and the station’s listeners came through and exceeded that goal, raising (at press time) $77,254.22.
The event was held on the roof Sunshine Toyota in Battle Creek.
“We’ve done the Roofsit at six different locations,” said Tim Collins, 95.3 WBCK Morning Show Host and Operations Manager at Townsquare Media. “We started at the Haven of Rest downtown, and even did it on top of a Behnke semi-trailer one year. This year we’re really happy to be in the Magnificent Motor Mile on Dickman Road, on top of Sunshine Toyota. Gary Minneman, Jr. has been a great supporter of the event in the past and thought it would be fun to host it.”
Haven Of Rest provides vital services for the hundreds of homeless women, children and families who stay at their emergency shelter, known as Inasmuch House. Inasmuch House is Calhoun County’s only shelter for homeless families.
