Gifts of Hope

Join 89Q in bringing hope to kids this Christmas through Gifts of Hope. Stop by the 89Q studios at 3500 Stewart in Wausau to pick up a tag (or two) from the tree.  Each tag has a gift for a child in need in our community. When you’re out shopping, pick up the gift listed on the tag and then deliver it wrapped to 89Q by December 9th.

The Friends Dinner is an annual effort by First Presbyterian Church in Wausau to provide a free Thanksgiving Meal for those in need. Due to the pandemic, that meal won’t take place family style at the church, but those in need can still have a meal delivered to help them celebrate with their family. You can help provide those meals by taking our survey. For each completed survey, Zingers and Flingers of Wausau will donate $1 to the Friends Dinner on your behalf.
