This is the 18th year that Dave, Ken and Molly are helping give struggling families a helping hand during the holidays with their Christmas Wish campaign.
This is their largest fundraiser of the year, and they are hoping to make it their biggest by raising more than $50,000, which would certainly brighten the holidays for a lot of families in our area.
Starting Monday morning, listeners were making their way down to the INB Performing Arts Center, where 92.9 ZZU set up to take donations for Christmas Wish.
"I think this is a great fund and I know people that have needed help in the past and it's the season for giving," Jill Kang said as she dropped off a donation Monday morning.
"The money keeps coming in, we have had lots of new sponsors, so it's going to be a good Christmas. We are going to make it a good Christmas for a lot of people," Dave Sposito said/
Christmas Wish wraps up donation collection at the end of the week. Then the 92.9 crew looks through all the nominated families and shares the money. Every nominated family gets something.
"It could be toys for the kids; we have given washer dryers, cars, couches … we have paid people's heat bills. Whatever it takes to get them through the holidays and make it a little bit better. That's what Christmas Wish is all about," Sposito said.
The Christmas Wish elves make their deliveries to those families live on the radio.
"We do surprise them and it's pretty heavy stuff, very emotional, especially for the people that have young kids and they want to have a nice Christmas for them," Sposito said.
Dave, Ken and Molly will be down at the INB Tuesday and Wednesday morning collecting donations. If you can't make it down to the INB, you can donate online by clicking here.
