Kids Kount Toy Drive

89Q is glad to partner with Kids Kount to collect toys for children whose parents are incarcerated in Marathon County. This year, the one-day collection will be Monday, December 10th from 7am to 7pm at the 89Q Studios at 3500 Stewart Ave.  Drop off new, unwrapped toys and clothes and Greater Wausau Christian Services will wrap and distribute these to children on their parent’s behalf this Christmas. They are especially in need of clothing for children 6 months to 2 years.

Your Christmas Music Station

We play Christmas music because a lot of new people, who don’t normally listen to our station, will listen. They will hear the true message of Christmas and the message of hope and salvation found in Jesus Christ. Please pray for the station during this time of outreach and please pray for those who listen for the first time!
