Help us bring Christmas to less fortunate Kalamazoo area kids this year.

Here's a great way to make a positive impact on our wonderful community.  While you're out Christmas shopping this year, pick up a couple of extra items for less fortunate children and teens in Southwest Michigan that may not otherwise receive a Holiday gift.

This year, 103.3 KFR is teaming up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest MichiganBlain's Farm and FleetKalamazoo Metro Transit and Honor Credit Union in an effort to make this a Holiday to remember for Southwest Michigan youth.  Dana Marshall, Jess Poxson and Lauren Gordon from 103.3 KFR will be joined by Mark Frankhouse, Meatball and Jake Black from 107.7 WRKR from 10am - 4 PM on Saturday, December 2nd in the parking lot of Blain's Farm and Fleet in Portage.  With your help, we will be stuffing that bus full of gifts for Kalamazoo area kids.

Where do the gifts go that are collected at Stuff the Bus?
