105.1 The Bull Distributes Shoeboxes for Soldiers this holiday season!

Springfield, MO – 105.1 The Bull Distributes Shoeboxes for Soldiers this holiday season!
Shoeboxes for Soldiers was founded by Rhonda Luttrell, the mother of a soldier during his first deployment to Afghanistan. Rhonda was soon packing and shipping care packages not only for her son, but to several troops as well. After a year of creating boxes filled with supplies, Rhonda decided to take the program to the next level and it was named “Shoeboxes for Soldiers”.
This is the second year that 105.1 The Bull has taken the lead and teamed up with local elementary schools to fill shoeboxes for soldiers during the holiday season. After a couple of months working with elementary schools, 105.1 The Bull received over two hundred boxes for soldiers, which is a major increase and a brand new record.
 “The elementary kids and teachers really made a big difference for our soldiers this holiday season” said John Kimmons, Program Director at Mid-West Family Broadcast. “I am very proud of them for what they’ve done.”

Other than numbers, Marie enjoys a lot of activities outdoors.  She enjoys softball, golfing, canoeing, road trip adventures, live music, and spending time with her chiweenie, Maven Grace. “I am a little bit of a reality TV junkie, so it’s no surprise that I’ve actually appeared on one,” Marie said. “I’ve had some unique experiences including being screamed at and worked out by Jillian Michaels, meeting Carson Daly & Al Roker while appearing on the Today Show, and working out with Olympic Medalist’s Apollo Anton Onho & Lolo Jones.”
