So yesterday I got a call from a guy that told me he lost his Mom, Wife, and Son in a car accident last week. His only request is that I help him find a car to get to and from the Hospital in Fort Wayne where his only surviving Son of the wreck was being held. I put his story on the air and you guys responded in a manner I had never witnessed before. Within one hour we had a truck for Gabe Spradlin. I want to thank EVERYONE involved yesterday. The outpouring of support for Gabe and his family was TREMENDOUS!
First off, thanks to Matt Wand for donating his 1990 Chevy Silverado. Without knowing this stranger he gladly donated his truck, I would also like to thank ALL of the other calls that came in afterwards from dealerships and listeners alike who wanted to help out. Big thanks to Taylor over at Advance Auto Parts for providing all of the parts needed to get the truck in proper working order, Mike and Andrew over at Smith and Sons Automotive for providing the service of putting ALL the new parts on the truck and lastly Eric over at TireVille for donating the tires.
You guys showed a side of humanity rarely seen these days. And I along with a butt ton of listeners would like to THANK YOU!
You can call Jessica Yoder at 419-852-9774 to make any donations to the family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gabe and everyone involved in the terrible accident.
