Established in 1990, The Christmas Gift helps make holiday dreams come true.
Each holiday season we ask our listeners to inform us of individuals and families who ﬁnd themselves in need during the most important time of year, Christmas. Based on the philosophy of biggest need comes ﬁrst, we do our best to grant as many Christmas Gifts as possible. Most of the Christmas Gifts are recorded and played back each weekday morning around 7:00am & 5:00pm in December until Christmas.
In keeping with the mantra of keeping the holiday spirit all the year ‘round, we also grant Christmas Gifts outside Christmas time when the need arises. Our revenue is produced by fundraising activities including “Burgers on the Plaza” each summer, “Fashion Avenue” in the fall, and generous donations.
You can hear the Christmas Gift each weekday during The Morning Crew and The Drive as well as online at kfgo.com on the podcast page.
In a year where so many are struggling, The Christmas Gift is not immune to the effects of COVID-19. Unable to hold our annual fundraising events such as Gift Burgers on the Plaza or Fashion Ave, The Christmas Gift has shifted to fundraising online.
