Since 1984 William A. Kibbe & Associates (WAK) has reached out to the community through our annual holiday giving program which began as a substitution for a boss’ gift and has evolved into the WAK family taking an active role as community stewards.
2016 marks a special milestone for us as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of our holiday donations going to Food for Families – a charity that provides food to local needy families serviced by Salvation Army locations in Saginaw, Bay, and Midland Counties. WSGW News Radio 790 has partnered with the Salvation Army to promote this charity, and works with area businesses as donation locations where listeners drop off food and donations.
This year, per tradition, Greg Bator (WAK Vice President), along with his wife, Mary, and daughter, Bridget, presented a company donation of over $4,200 on the morning before Christmas Eve to WSGW morning show hosts, Art Lewis, Charlie Rood, and Dave Maurer.
Combined with proceeds from WAK’s charity golf outing over the summer, we’re proud to say that we were able to donate an impressive $8,828 to Food for Families in 2016, and over the course of our 25-year history with this charity, we have provided over $78,000 to needy families in our region.
