WBGL celebrates 20 years of Single Mom Saturday
CHAMPAIGN, IL – October 2, 2023– WBGL (Champaign, IL) worked with 12 auto dealerships and repair shops to provide 175 free oil changes for single mothers. This year marked the 20th anniversary of this event.
“You have no idea what kind of a blessing this is,” said Kadaisha, a single mom who participated in Single Mom Saturday. The shop found she needed a lot of work done on her car, and she was moved to tears by the generosity of others who met the need. She has been through a difficult season that has included trying to pay for schooling. The repairs came at the perfect time.
“We are thankful for the opportunity to give back to hard-working moms who invest so much into those around them,” said Brittney Ciciora, WBGL’s Community Engagement Manager. “Our team looks forward to this event every year. We walk away feeling moved by their dedication and resilience.”
WBGL is a part of the Northwestern Media network of University of Northwestern – St. Paul. Northwestern Media stations broadcast on 104 outlets across 11 states.
