Default News Hero (1)

Our second Winter Warm Up Request-A-Thon will take place on November 13 and 14, 2018. We’re gathering incentives to encourage people to request a song and donate to local, limited-income families who need help restoring or maintaining safe utility service this winter. We’ll reveal many more surprise incentives during the event. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook before the Request-A-Thon begins so that you can stay up to date with rapid-fire incentives, guests and promotions throughout the two days.

Ways to Donate

  • Call 1-800-823-WARM at any time during the hours of the event (6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on November 13 & 14) and a volunteer will assist you with your donation and submitting a song request.
  • Text WARM to 50555 to donate $10 through your wireless bill and submit your request through text message. Message & Data Rates May Apply.
  • Visit to submit a donation and request via our secure, online donation portal.

Become a Neighborhood Hero!

A donation of $180, made in installments of $15/month or with a one-time donation, will make you a Neighborhood Hero! A $180 donation becomes $360 in assistance once matched by our utility partners. This amount is equal to Dollar Energy Fund’s average winter heating season grant amount and is enough to keep the utility service on for a household in need during the winter. Your support at this level makes you eligible for donation incentives and your song request will jump to the top of our list.

Become a neighborhood hero and you’ll have the chance to win the following incentives:

  • Pittsburgh Penguins Package including tickets, Malkin autographed jersey, dinner for two at Mallorca and more! (Provided by Total Sports Enterprises)
  • Stocking Stuffer Package including an overnight stay at Seven Springs Resort, tickets to Michael Buble concert, Kennywood and Sandcastle passes, tickets to Blake Shelton concert and more!
  • Join Jonny Hartwell, Sheri Van Dyke and Mike Frazer from 3WS for a group dinner at Mallorca.
  • Pittsburgh Steelers Package including tickets, James Conner autographed jersey, Ryan Shazier autographed mini helmet and more! (Provided by Total Sports Enterprises)

The concept is simple: make a donation of $10 or more during the event, make a request and listen to 94.5 3WS. Every effort will be made to play your song, but higher donation amounts will increase your chance of hearing your song in its entirety and enter you to win the incentives above. All donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our utility partners, which makes your gift go twice as far in helping those in our region who are in need of utility assistance this winter. Listen to 94.5 3WS during the event for details.
