Two Greencastle radio stations held a one-day fundraiser collecting money and goods to send to those affected by the West Virginia floods.

101.5 Bob Rocks was live at the Break Away II Sports Lounge in Hagerstown for their live broadcast.

Co hosts of the Nasty Bob Show are getting the word out to people to help those affected by the floods in West Virginia. Big Bob is from West Virginia and knows people who were affected.

“Areas such Pinch and Elk, Glendale, big chimney some of these areas are places where I have friends and family still to this day, my sister lives in Jackson County she was affected by the flood. My mom and dad live right on the canal river in Canal city", said Big Bob.  

During the morning the crew collected nearly two thousand dollars and received donations from Gerald’s Taylor Company in Williamsport and Hafer’s Gunsmithing in Hagerstown.

“I think it's our duty to do what we can to help these people whether we've ever met them, whether you have family affected by this or you see it on TV. I think it's important and this community has really come out and shown their support,” said Big Bob.

In addition to 101.5 their sister station 104.7 Way Z held their fundraiser at the same time at Antrim way Honda located in Greencastle.

Antrim Way Honda is doing something amazing. For every car sold today and today only they're going to donate five hundred dollars. Their goal is to sell twenty cars to donate ten thousand dollars," said Kristle, the midday host for 104.7.

People from all over donated supplies during the day.

“We've also been getting a lot of pet supplies; we've been getting a lot of rakes and shovels. I mean back here we have a ton of things. I mean we still need more the more donations the better,” said Kristle.

All the funds collected will be going to the united way of central West Virginia.
