The Butler Radio Network and Mars Bank spent Friday morning raising money for local veterans.
The Rock Station 97.7FM was broadcasting from Cummings Coffee Shop West on Evans City Road in Connoquenessing and encouraging people to make a donation to the Butler County Veterans In Need Program.
“It’s a local program that helps veterans with furniture to furnish their apartments and it also helps vets that fall into financial troubles,” Roy Remone, one of the program directors, said in an interview Friday.
Remone says this is the only program like it on the East Coast.
All the money raised for Butler County Veterans In Need stays here to help local vets.
