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 Free Beer and Hot Wings Show has to help out a family in need in Genesee County.

With the holidays approaching, many people will simply not be able to provide for their families. We have a solution for this. Families in need can be nominated by you, our listeners. We will then go through those nominations and select the deserving recipients. Our goal has always been to select the families that we can help the most. 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 crew, with the help of a locksmith and local police, will literally break into the recipients' 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. This is done solely with the intent to provide these families with something that they are financially unable to provide themselves.

If you know a Genesee County family in need this holiday season, you'll be able to nominate them through a link on our website starting on Monday. 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. And please, keep it a secret from those nominated!
