More than $211,000 to be presented to Graves County officials by WJRS today

The generosity of Russell Countians will be delivered today to officials in Mayfield and Graves County to assist in tornado relief efforts.

As a result of the hugely successful Laker Country CARES Radiothon held last Thursday here on WJRS, and thanks to the overwhelming support of our friends and listeners, the sum of $211,492.81 will be given to the directors of the Mayfield Graves County Tornado Relief Fund.

The presentation from Laker Country 1049 staff will take place around 1 p.m. this afternoon at Independence Bank in Mayfield.

Donations came from Russell County school students, churches, local businesses, organizations, and individuals, all combining to more than double the original fundraising goal.

From all of the staff here at Laker Country 1049, we say “thank you” from the bottom of our hearts for your response and generosity.
