Kicks Christmas Wish

THANK YOU to everyone who donated to help families in need, right here in our community! Whether it was $5 dollars or $500 dollars, every amount was a blessing to these people, and they'll never forget your generosity!

On Friday (12/11), we wrapped up our 2020 Kicks 99 Christmas Wish. What a day! Your generosity continues to blow us away! Between monetary donations, toys, meals, gift cards and iPads, you helped us collect over the $30,000 to help ten families in our community!

When you consider that this wasn’t some company-wide, corporate sponsored fundraiser, it really is mind blowing. This was simply you sending stories of your friends & neighbors in need, and us going on the air, asking how anyone could help.

It was an emotional day, as we saw first hand how these families were touched by your outpouring of support. There were tears – lots of ’em. As you enjoy the upcoming holiday, we hope that the Kicks 99 Christmas Wish will remind you to count your own blessings…and remind you what a blessing you’ve been to these ten families.
