Atlanta’s streets will not be safe for the likes of hunger this holiday season, as Drama partners with Hosea Feed the Hungry (HFTH) and all of the Radio One-Atlanta stations (Hot 107.9, Majic 107.5/97.5 and Praise 102.5) for the first annual Turkey Challenge.   This is not just another turkey call. This challenge will make a real difference and help HFTH purchase 3,000 turkeys that will feed the thousands of working poor and homeless in Atlanta and the Southeast.

To reach this goal, all of the Radio One Atlanta stations — along with Drama, and other on-air personalities and celebrities — will host radio call-ins all day on November 16, 2009 challenging celebrities and the community to bring financial contributions to help purchase turkeys.   This event will air LIVE on all of the Radio One Atlanta stations from South Dekalb Mall asking Atlantans to give back to the community this holiday season.   In addition to being the featured meal at four holiday dinners — Thanksgiving, Christmas, Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday and Easter —the turkeys will be given to hundreds of needy individuals Monday Nov. 23 through Nov. 25 at HFTH’s headquarters.

HFTH’s valued community partners, like Drama, The Aphilliates, and the Radio One Atlanta stations (Hot 107.9, Majic 107.5/97.5 and Praise 102.5), will ensure that it continues serving those in need for another 40 years. To make a direct financial contribution, please go to
