Grind Mode Management and legendary Pittsburgh radio personality DJ Nick
Nice (also known as Nick Schilling), hosted a curbside donation drive, "Stop and Drop"; this Sunday, April 26, 2020 in Highland Park at the Rhododendron Shelter,
Lake Drive, Pittsburgh, Pa. 15206. The event was free and anyone was able to donate.
Stop and Drop follows similar events on DJ Nick Nice's personal Facebook
page. He uses his personal Facebook page to raise awareness and donations
for families and individuals devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, he is taking his Facebook momentum to the curb.
Pedestrians and motorists made curbside donations (adhering to current
social distancing practices). The group was looking for food (perishable and non-
perishable), clothing, disinfectant materials, and other donation items that will be
useful in the pandemic.
Light of Life Rescue Mission (www.lightoflife.org), a shelter and resource for
those in need, homeless, abused, and addicted, is the recipient of the Stop and
Drop event in Highland Park.
Nick Nice saw a lot of people suffering due to COVID-19, so he opened my social media
page to accept donations.
I donated all of the contributions to deserving families.
I realized the aggressive nature of the coronavirus required an aggressive
response in service. This is our response", DJ Nick Nice said.
Schilling and other artists in the Greater Pittsburgh area have found creative
ways to orbit these times of crisis.
As a result of DJ Nick Nices' social media
influence (his personal Facebook page is under his name -- Nick Schilling), he
had the following stats:
April 2, 2020 - Approx. 60,000 view impressions on Facebook on the first two
April 6, 2020 - Over $300 in Gift cards to deserving families.
April 11, 2020 - Woodland Hills fundraiser raising over $5,000 in 2 hours with
April 11, 2020 - 20 food vouchers from Big Shot Bob's in Bellevue, PA.
In recent weeks, Americans, and the world, have suffered at the hands of
COVID-19, a highly contagious virus that causes respiratory illnesses and can
even lead to death. Information on the COVID-19 and how to stay safe can be
found at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov).
