96 Key's Twelve Wishes of Christmas program started back in 1985. Each year we solicit letters from our listeners, asking them to tell us about families they know of who are in need of assistance over the holidays.
We have a committee at the station who reviews all letters received, and also coordinate with the Community Action Partnership of Cambria County, to validate the legitimacy of the letters.
Requests for help include those for food, heating oil, help with mortgage payments, clothing items, new appliances, furniture, dentures, artificial limbs, fire victims, etc. We do not give cash to our recipients. We often give gift cards for groceries, clothing, etc. In the case requests for heating oil or appliances, we send checks directly to the oil company or appliance retailer. All monies received are utilized to grant our wishes. There are no administrative costs.
Contributors should make checks payable to Twelve Wishes of Christmas, WKYE, 109 Plaza Drive, Johnstown, PA 15905
