103.9 The Fox is raising money for a local charity’s campaign that makes a huge impact on children in Flint and Genesee County… The Old Newsboys of Flint’s Christmas Program.
The Christmas Program is the ONB’s longest running and highest impact program serving Genesee County’s at-risk children from newborn through age 18. It provides them with a sweat suit, two pair of socks and underwear, a knit cap and pair of Thinsulate™ gloves, a toothbrush, toothpaste and dental floss, and an age appropriate toy or game.
All products are new and none have any indication of coming from the Old Newsboys—so the child need never know the gifts weren’t from Santa. The items go home with mom and dad in a sturdy cardboard box that can be wrapped separately for gift giving.
Since 1924, children suffering in chronic poverty or who are devastated by the effects of special circumstances like homelessness or sudden job loss can count on the Old Newsboys. In fact, more than 812,000 children have counted on them so far.
