Wrapping Up the Holidays specific needs:
Call Toni at 943-9937 if you'd like to volunteer to help!
Where does the money go? What if I know someone who needs help? This year we're working the Holiday Connection (a coalition of local social service agencies) and Barb's Family and Friends.
The overhead for this drive is borne by the station; 100% of the money collected goes directly to families. All the groups involved pledge to use 100% of the donations to meet the needs of their client families.
Checks can me made out to "Mixx96 Community Fund" or to any of the specific agencies:
100% of everything donated is given to families in our local area. We will funnel any specified donations from Lewis or Mason counties to agencies with clients in that specific area.
The Holiday Connection is a coalition of local service agencies who direct the holiday needs of their clients to a clearing center that tries to match donor and recipients. The Holiday Connection funnels donations from our drive and other sources to families with last-minute emergency needs including children and elders not adopted by giving trees or other organizations. The Holiday Connection also strives to work with families in need to match them with appropriate agencies if there are other family needs such as energy assistance, job training, housing, etc. 100% goes to families in need.
Lee Wojnar of O Bee Credit Union will do anything to raise money for kids!
