    Sunday Mornings with Dee Daniels

    What good things will you do today?

    Ginger Walker & Dee Daniels of B101.5 talked on the Sunday Show about the annual Toy Drive for Children’s National Hospital and some of the challenges they’ve faced during COVID-19 collecting toys vs years past and why this drive means so much to Ginger. Click the play button below to hear the full broadcast.

    After listening, take a minute to imagine you are the one that donated that one toy, the toy that teacher from Stafford Country received as a child and still has to this day. Imagine the smile you will be putting on the face of a sick child.
