Cumulus Media Albuquerque Helps Local Shelters Fight the Effects of Heat on Area Homeless Community Through Bottled Water and Supplies Drive

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, July 24, 2023 – Cumulus Media (NASDAQ: CMLS) announces that Cumulus Albuquerque has partnered with Dreamstyle Remodeling and Pete’s Landscaping and Materials to collect urgently needed items for Albuquerque’s unhoused community this summer. In response to an outcry from Albuquerque shelters during the current heat wave of record temperatures and sweltering heat, Cumulus Albuquerque, Dreamstyle Remodeling, and Pete’s Landscaping and Materials are collecting bottled water, Gatorade, and hygiene products to benefit HopeWorks Outreach, Steelbridge, Joy Junction and The Rock at Noonday.

Cumulus Albuquerque team members will collect donations of bottled water, Gatorade, and hygiene products for area shelters on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, from 7:00am – 7:00pm at Dreamstyle Remodeling, 1460 N Renaissance Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM, 87107. Cumulus radio stations KKOB, KOBQ, KMGA, KNML and KRST will broadcast live from Dreamstyle Remodeling throughout the day on Wednesday to encourage people to drop off their donations to help those suffering in the heat. A full list of needed items can be found on each station’s website.

Jeff Berry, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Albuquerque, said: “I’ve always been impressed by the people of Albuquerque and their desire to pitch in when there is a community call to action. We are pleased to assist these deserving charities with this immediate need for water and supplies for our homeless neighbors struggling with the heat this summer.”

Elma Reynalds, CEO, Joy Junction said: “Joy Junction extends its services out in the community through our Lifeline of Hope food truck daily. With several stop locations in our city, bottled water is one of the popular items, especially in this very hot summertime. Your donation of bottled water would be so much appreciated by our clients who don’t have access or can’t afford to get a cold drink to cool themselves. Let’s come together and make someone feel that they are not forgotten with your bottled water donation.”

Shane Rabindranath, Executive Director, Steelbridge said: “What people don’t understand during the summer months is that giving drastically slows down, but our expenses like electricity to keep residents cool and water supplies to reach those on the street only increase.”
