WIRX at the Berrien County DHHS Foster Care Holiday Event!!

On Friday, Brock & Hunter swung by the Berrien County DHHS Foster Care Holiday event for some fun, food, and GIFTS!  Not for them of course, but for the kids!  It truly was amazing to see some much love and support from the community to make this holiday season a memorable one for the foster care families in our area.  Santa was there and there were so many gifts for all these awesome kids who, more than likely, wouldn’t have gotten if it wasn’t for the support and hard work of so many amazing people.  It’s always inspiring to be out at these types of events and see just how important the foster care system really is!  Below are some interviews and pics from the event.  ENJOY!

Listen to this awesome recap of the event HERE:

Kylie is one of Kelly’s wonderful kids and wanted to talk on the radio…so of course,  Brock obliged 🙂
