Agl Volunteered at the United Way Day of Caring/Day of Reading

United Way - CMC 06202014

AGL partners with United Way of Henry County and Martinsville to participate in United Way’s annual Day of Caring/Day of Reading event.  This community-wide reading project highlights the importance of reading to children.  It is a simple, easy and yet highly impactful service for the children in our area. Volunteers from around the community, including AGL employees visited local daycares, churches, and medical centers to read to children to help improve childhood development and academic achievements of children.  After the volunteers read to the children, each child was given an age appropriate book from United Way to take home.

Since the tournament’s inception, it has raised almost $4,000,000.00 in support of charity.


Shriners Hospitals for Children
provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.

Plus conduct research to discover new knowledge that improves the quality of care and quality of life of children and families.

This mission is carried out without regard to race, color, creed, sex or sect, disability, national origin or ability of a patient or family to pay.

shrinAce & TJ’s Grin Kids is a non-profit 501(c) 3 charity, created by morning show personalities Ace & TJ in Charlotte, North Carolina in January of 2000. The name of the organization comes from Ace & TJ’s motto on their morning show, “You Grin, You’re In!”

Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids is designed to enhance the lives of children in our listening areas who are terminally ill and chronically handicapped, ages five through twelve, by taking them to  Disneyworld with their entire family.

Each year, Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids charters a 737 to take these children, with their sibling, parents, and health care workers to Disneyworld in Florida. Because of their special needs and financial  strain, this is an experience that many of these children and families would not be able to know without the help of Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids.

Grin Kids is funded exclusively by listener donations. Some are large, some are small, but without the listeners, the “Radio Family” participating in various fundraising events, the Grin Kids trip would not be possible year to year.
