Here's all the info on how you can help fight child abuse in Southwest Michigan with Roof Sit 2022.

Each year for the last 24 years, even during the pandemic, 103.3 KFR has helped raise money for the Community Healing Center with Roof Sit.  Funds raised at the event support treatment for children who have been sexually or physically abused, treatment and healing for their families, as well as intensive support for parents, infants, toddlers, and children who are facing significant challenges.  All money raised stays right here, in our community.  Last year the community came together to raise $90,000 for this important cause.  This year, our goal is $110,000.
