The Pulse Morning Show Co-Host Pat LaMarche wants to help out.Starting Monday, Pat will be experiencing what it’s like to be without heat. She’ll be living in a small wooden shed called a hobbit hole all week or until she raises $70,000 for the Maine Heating Assistance Program.Station owner Stephen King has pledged to match the money raised up to that amount.”I’ll be here Thanksgiving, I’ll be here all those times when people who can afford to be warm will be really thankful for how warm they are and hopefully that sort of generousity will overflow and they’ll help. They can reach their hand right into Stephen King’s pocket. They take $20 out of their pocket, they’re reaching into Stephen King’s pocket and taking out a matching $20,” said LaMarche.You can visit to find out how to donate.
