Bryan Broadcasting celebrated the season of giving with the annual Christmas Angels program. For over twenty years, our station has participated to bring Christmas to the children of families less fortunate.
We collaborated with the Department of Health and Human Services for months to get the list of 477 children from the Brazos Valley that wouldn’t have anything under their Christmas Tree without help from radio listeners.
“Bryan Broadcasting was responsible for covering Christmas trees at two Blue Baker locations, and thanks to our radio stations help, each and every name was picked off of the two trees,” said Ashlea Gutierrez, Assistant Coordinator of Christmas Angels.
Numerous volunteers showed their support by coming to the studio to help organize the multitude of gifts that arrived daily. Countless staff members also stayed to the late hours of the night to help label, wrap, and document each gift to ensure that every child had a fair amount of presents to unwrap.
One empty office in the Crystal Park Plaza was stocked full of boxes, bags, wrapping paper, tools, and helping hands, while another empty office was completely filled with bicycles for these angels.
The gifts were given out across the span of one weekend. The staff gave their weekend to help load numerous bicycles and basketball goals into the cars that would carry the gifts to a deserving child.
“While we get the privilege of helping out with this, it’s really the listeners event,” said Candy 95’s Frito, “Without people adopting angels and shopping for them or businesses donating money for us to shop for them nothing happens. It’s another example of the incredible generosity of people in Aggieland.”
Bryan Broadcasting would like to give a big shout out to some of our wonderful sponsors!
And Many Others!!
