Give to the homeless through the Oliver Gospel Mission's Hope-A-Thon

COLUMBIA (WACH) -- If you have a heart for the homeless, the Oliver Gospel Mission is hosting a Hope-A-Thon Thursday.

The telethon takes place from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in the Vista.

WACH Fox News will be on hand all day broadcasting live from the event. You can stop by and visit with our on-air personalities.
