Fun 107 and United Way of Greater New Bedford are making a difference with the Holiday Wishes program for the third year in a row. Last year, they helped local families get gifts for their families, replaced a car, assisted with rent and so much more.

Holiday Wishes encourage local businesses and sponsors, as well as listeners, to donate their services or gifts to make a struggling family’s holiday season much brighter.

All families are selected by the United Way of Greater New Bedford through a submission process from local shelters and community organizations. Starting November 27th five very deserving local families will be highlighted on air on the Rock and Fox Show.

To donate, text WISHES to 313131. Your donation will go directly to the United Way of Greater New Bedford’s Holiday Wishes Fund. Also, if you use Amazon this holiday season, a portion of your purchase can go towards the United Way of Greater New Bedford.
