Local Troops Get a Hand

Supporting American troops in Iraq is as easy as giving them a hand.

Hot 104.9 and the American Red Cross teamed up for Give the Troops a Hand. Radio listeners left a personal message and their handprints on a huge banner.

While the Red Cross took in donations of toiletries for army soldiers serving in the desert in a program called Adopt a G.I.

Once the banner is full of prints it will be displayed in different locations around Tallahassee. If you would like more information on Red Cross's Adopt a G.I. program check out their Web site at www.tallytown.com
