On a morning in December, the 997 CYK staff, local businesses, and listeners will be delivering a Christmas tree, gifts, and any essential items to a local family in need while their NOT home so that when they return home, they receive a vast Christmas surprise. Here are some of the details about the family we're serving in the form of an email:
I want to nominate a superhero. This superhero in my life has helped the lives of so many people. This Hero has saved lives, yet our Hero has hit a significant roadblock. The family I want to nominate today is dealing with a list of unforeseen medical issues. It has been like a storm that no one saw coming. They have always been used to helping others, and now they can barely support themselves. This family accepts that Christmas will not be a reality for them. They have discussed this, and Christmas simply isn't happening. No child or parent should ever have to accept that, especially from people who always helped others! Because of the medical bills that have piled up, necessities like groceries, gas for the vehicle, and utility expenses have been a real struggle. On top of that, we fear that the heat in the house will be an issue this Winter. I've been praying for a miracle; after all, our Hero has provided many miracles for the lives of many. Now, someone must save our Hero.
Monetary donations will 100% go toward the family's medical expenses and any other utility bills that must be addressed.
