The Palmer Home Radiothon is something that we at SuperTalk look forward to every, single year.
Not only do we love what Palmer Home does to help the children of Mississippi, but we love the faith-based organization’s mission to make sure any kid who comes through Palmer Home receives extensive, familial support even after their time with Palmer Home.
While the world we currently live in is the epitome of unprecedented, it was never an option to cancel the 2020 Radiothon as the monetary support that comes from this annual event makes a massive—and the word “massive” cannot be stressed enough—impact on the lives of these amazing children.
The 2020 Radiothon, indeed, did take place yesterday, and it played out beautifully. Even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, both Palmer Home and SuperTalk worked together to adapt and thrive.
Below, you can find a condensed list of highlights from the day. Enjoy!

You have done it! Your generous donations have helped us raise more than $250,000 for the kids at @PalmerHome during our 8th Annual Palmer Home for Children Radiothon, which means it is time for me to shave! #Radiothon2020 @supertalk pic.twitter.com/MzyoYusMsx
