FBHW Holiday Break-In
The 3rd Annual Free Beer & Hot Wings Holiday Break In is Friday, Dec. 20. Bills Brothers Furniture has stepped up again this year to provide furniture and The Iowa Beef Council will put $250 in beef into the freezer of a family who may not otherwise have much under the tree. 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, our teams of “hoodlums”, with the help of a locksmith and local police, will literally break in to 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 family in need this holiday season, nominate them by e-mailing their story to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide us with as many details as possible such as 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!
