It's hard to believe that week one of the 44th Season of Christmas Wish is in the books. It was a very busy week investigating letters, working with schools, excepting donations, family adoptions and volunteering. Here's a look back at week one from the Christmas Wish Headquarters inside of the Towne Square Mall.
The Daviess County Fire Department hosted a golf scramble, as they do every year to raise money for those less fortunate in the community. Even though fundraising hasn't been easy during the pandemic, these heroes found a way to make it happen. Here's the interview, and video, from the check presentation that happened on Wednesday.
After you've stuffed your face on Thanksgiving, get ready to burn off some calories on Black Friday. We are looking to stuff the WBKR van with new, unwrapped toys, coats and gifts, along with food items for those less fortunate in the community.

Fast Lane Auto Repair, along with American Legion Post 9 is on a mission to provide hundreds of bikes to kids at Christmas. They are asking for community members to donate kids' bikes of all ages this holiday season.
Volunteers are essential to the Christmas Wish mission every single year. This year, things just look a bit different. We want to give you the opportunity to change lives this holiday season, but we have to do it responsibly. If you would like to volunteer, here's what you need to know.
The benefit yard sale, in memory of Dalton "Nanner" Nantz, was a big success over Labor Day weekend. Because so many gave, the Nantz family presented a check totaling $2,300 to help area children this holiday season.
The Nantz family will be hosting a community yard sale this weekend to benefit Christmas Wish. Dalton Nantz, was a military veteran and humanitarian who passed away in January of 2018. "Nanner" was a huge supporter of Christmas Wish, so the family wanted to honor his memory, in a very special way. Many people from all over the community have already dropped off items for the event.
You still have time to get a team together to help make sure every child in the tri-state gets a visit from Santa this year. The Christmas Wish Golf Scramble with the Daviess County Fire Department is right around the corner.
