COLUMBUS, Miss.–In one week, you can help change lives by giving as part of the annual SuperTalk Mississippi Palmer Home Radiothon. Each donation will go to the unique “social orphanage”, where children are raised in a nurturing environment and taught the love of God.
SuperTalk Mississippi will host the event for the second time Thursday, June 26, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., with all three main SuperTalk programs The Gallo Show, J.T. Show and Head to Head, broadcasting live from the main Palmer Home campus in Columbus.
The goal is to raise $100,000, which will go toward the day to day operations of the Palmer Home.
The audience will hear directly from children, alumni, staff and supporters of Palmer Home as they share their stories of hope and healing, as well as learning more about the exciting growth that is made possible by generous supporters of the event, said a news release.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with SuperTalk again this year and are truly grateful for their commitment to our mission,” said Josh Whelan, Vice President of Development for Palmer Home. “Since we are privately-funded, we rely on the support of generous partners like SuperTalk to help us impact the lives of hundreds of children. Without organizations like SuperTalk, it would be difficult to create an environment of hope and execute our goal of making our children’s lives whole. It is with profound gratitude we host Supertalk on our Columbus campus again this June.”

A dynamic line-up of guests include Mississippi Governor, Phil Bryant; Sam Haskell, renowned TV executive, writer and speaker; Jimmy Wayne, country music singer and songwriter and author; and athlete Tyson Lee, former Mississippi State University quarterback, who after leaving the NFL, moved back to Mississippi and began working with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at MSU.
“It is a tremendous honor to be able to use the statewide reach of SuperTalk Mississippi to raise funds and awareness for Palmer Home,” said David Day, Program Director for SuperTalk Mississippi. “Their mission is clear, just and something every Mississippian should know about and support.”
During the Radiothon, listeners are encouraged to call in and support Palmer Home for Children with donations and pledges. Money raised from the Radiothon will go directly to Palmer Home for Children. Last year, the inaugural event raised $73,000.
