Each year around the holidays, we make it a point to stop our normal antics for just one day to do something good and use the reach that Banana 101.5 and the Free Beer and Hot Wings Show has to help out a family in need in Genesee County.

So many people in Genesee County will not be able to provide for their families this holiday season. We have a small solution for this. Families in need can be nominated by you, our listeners. We will then go through those nominations and select the recipients. Our goal has always been to select the families that we can help the most.

The Holiday Break-in would not be possible without our amazing sponsors:

If we select the family that you nominate, you will then become our “accomplice” and will help us throughout the entire process: shopping for the family, getting the family out of the house, the actual break-in, etc.

On the Day of the Break-In

The Banana 101.5 crew, with the help of a locksmith, will literally break into the recipient's home and leave them a holiday season they may not have had…food, decorations, gifts, everything.

No notes will be left. There will be no TV cameras or reporters. Everything is completely anonymous.

If you know a family in need this holiday season, nominate them here. Please provide us with as many details as possible such as the number of children, ages, parents’ work hours, and anything else you think would help.

All we ask is that you do not nominate yourself, or those you live with, as it should be a surprise for the recipient. And please, keep it a secret from those nominated!

Thank you for helping us do some good for our community. Happy Holidays from Banana 101.5!
