89Q Partners with Police Depts and Culvers for Lights of Christmas Drive

On Thursday October 23, 89Q – WCLQ in Wausau along with Culver’s restaurant locations in Wausau and Rothschild held the first ever, ‘Lights of Christmas’ event.

Officers from the area police departments were out at the Culver’s locations serving up custard and butter burgers from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Ten percent of sales for the day and all tips were placed in a Lights of Christmas account, administered by Christian radio station 89Q. All money from the fund will be used to purchase gift cards from Kwik Trip, Culver’s, Walmart and other stores. During the month of December, respective departments’ officers will receive these gift cards. Then, during the course of their normal duties, they will distribute to people in need as they see fit.

In their first year, over $3600 in cash was received to go toward the purchase of the gift cards. And the next phase will be the collecting men’s hats, socks and gloves for the backpacks that officers hand out to neighbors in need for ‘Lights of Christmas.’
