Dick and Dave’s Breaking and Entering Christmas

What a great way to spend the morning! Q99 Radio Station, Roanoke Valley Community Credit Union, and Family Promise of Greater Roanoke worked with United Way of Roanoke Valley in adopting a local family for Dick and Dave’s Breaking and Entering Christmas segment on December 20th. Without ruining too much of the surprise, we worked with Family Promise of Greater Roanoke in identifying a family who could use a little extra cheer this holiday season by asking for a specific wishlist for a single mom and her two children. Q99 then put a call out to their listeners for donations of these specific items, and with their help and the help of Roanoke Valley Community Credit Union, Dave of Q99 with radio station staffers and United Way staff members surprised the family by bringing a tree, decorations, and wrapped gifts to their home. While the family was out enjoying breakfast, the team quickly transformed their living room. We are so honored to have the opportunity to help make these special memories and thank everyone who took part in the festivities!
