The Fun 107 Morning Show was so touched by the generosity this week during Holiday Wish, each of them would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to the community.

In its 8th year of working together, Fun 107 and the United Way of Greater New Bedford were able to help five local families, but it was the effort of the community that will allow these families to have a brighter future.

2022 marks my third year of hosting Holiday Wish alongside Michael and Gazelle, and every year, I am inspired by the selflessness of the SouthCoast community. Complete strangers calling and texting in to give to a family they never met, all in the spirit of giving, makes my heart explode with gratitude. The SouthCoast is truly a special place, where the comradery and support for fellow neighbors ring loudly all year long, not just during Holiday Wish Week. I am in awe of the support that these five families received this year. Michael, Gazelle, and I are simply messengers with microphones. The people in our community are the true rock stars. Thank you for another great year of Holiday Wish.

My favorite part of Holiday Wish Week is when the kids call in and give, and you know there are parents behind that donation. We are generating a new generation of givers. Listening to parents teach the importance of giving to their children is the best part of Holiday Wish and I am so grateful for every person that chooses to be selfless, call in, and give to these deserving families.


Each and every year, I’m blown away by the selfless generosity of the SouthCoast. Those who have nothing still dig deep, and watching the community unify, especially the smaller local businesses, that speaks volumes. It makes me proud to live here.

On behalf of the morning show, we thank you for showing up for these families in need and continuing to prove that any donation, big or small, can help make a difference in the lives of others.
