For the third year, we've teamed up with the United Way of Greater New Bedford to bring Holiday Wishes to the Southcoast.

This year we are working to make the holidays brighter for five local families, from Wareham to Fall River.

In the past, our listeners have generously donated to these families- people they've never met- to ensure they had a happy holiday.

Beginning Monday, November 29th, we'll tell you the stories of five local families who have had one of the hardest year's of their lives, much like one of our families from last year, seen below.

To donate, text WISHES to 313131. Your donation will go directly to the United Way of Greater New Bedford's Holiday Wishes Fund.

Monday's Family: The Fielding Family from Wareham
Tuesday's Family: The Pacheco Family from New Bedford
Wednesday's Family: The Curran/Mercer Family from Fall River
Thursday's Family: Cindy and Vanessa from Puerto Rico/New Bedford
Friday's Family: The Wilcox Family from Dartmouth
