When the college basketball tournament tips off, Froggy Country’s Military Madness begins! It’s a 12-hour basic needs drive for our military stationed overseas.
The community is invited to shop and drop donations during a live broadcast on:
Tuesday, March 14
6 a.m. – 6 p.m.
301 Leonardwood Drive
Froggy Country’s Military Madness started in 2009 with a request from local military mom, Colleen Meszaros, who wanted to send a care package to her son in Kuwait. Froggy Radio and the community responded! Over the last 7 years, we have collected and sent hundreds of pounds of snacks and toiletries to our men and women stationed overseas.
Donations from the suggested shopping list (below), may also be dropped off at the Froggy Studio located at 115 West Main Street, Frankfort, Kentucky 40601 until April 3. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
