MADISON, Wis. – Dec. 9, 2020 – Life 102.5 listeners provided over 1,500 shoeboxes filled with gifts for children in southern Wisconsin who would not otherwise have been able to open anything on Christmas morning. Shoebox Gift for Kids has been giving Christmas to Madison kids for 20 years, and this year Life 102.5 was able to join them. They worked together to make this happen through seven different drop-off locations.
“I don’t know what is more contagious,” Steve Young, the station manager, said. “The look of happiness on the faces of the kids or the excitement and joy of those who donated the shoeboxes.” Listeners were eager to provide and share out of their abundance for those who had less this time of year.
Jackie Hunt, a social worker who coordinated the distribution to the kids said, “Families are struggling right now, particularly with COVID-19…If we only get to make these kids happy for this one day, then let’s make them happy today.”
