New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) March 16, 2005
Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mike Gallagher announced today that his charitable foundation and General Steel Corporation are partnering to help pay for the education of the children of military men and women who have been killed fighting the war on terror.
Gallagher fondly refers to his estimated 3.25 million weekly listeners as ÂGallagherÂs ArmyÂ and frequently asks his listeners to help in charitable causes.
General Steel Corporation, one of the best-known brands of steel buildings and a longtime sponsor of The Mike Gallagher Show, recently donated $33,000 to start the ÂGallagherÂs Army/General Steel Educational Assistance Fund.
ÂI canÂt think of a better way to support our troops than to help fulfill these heroÂs dreams for their childrenÂs education,Â said Jeff Knight, founder and president of General Steel.
Gallagher added, ÂI am honored to be partnering with a company like General Steel to help make a difference in the lives of these young people.Â
Gallagher said he will continue to ask for contributions and donations of support in the coming months to add to the fund.
In announcing the formation of the fund, Gallagher said, ÂGeneral Steel was very generous in its initial contribution. We plan to take advantage of this fast start by dedicating our energy in the coming months to not only add to the fund, but to publicize the existence of the fund to ensure the money is distributed quickly to the families who need the help.Â
Information about the fund and an application can be found online at http://www.gallaghersarmy.com.
General Steel is a leader in the pre-engineered steel building Industry, providing buildings around the world for almost any purpose. The GeneralÂs prominent advertisements on radio and television have lead to increasing the awareness of the cost and time savings provided by steel buildings.
The Mike Gallagher Show can be heard on over 200 radio stations daily. Gallagher is also a frequent guest host/contributor on Fox News. Gallagher formed The Mike Gallagher Show Charitable Foundation (ÂGallagherÂs ArmyÂ) in response to his listenerÂs support of charitable causes he often mentioned on his radio show. GallagherÂs Army has helped send over 70,000 Âgift boxesÂ to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
