WBZ Cares is our public service initiative focused on local nonprofit entities, events, and causes. Each month WBZ NewsRadio 1030 will select an organization to profile.
Through news stories, public service announcements and guest appearances on NightSide with Dan Rea, we will show the hard work and dedication of our local charities.
WBZ NewsRadio has been a trusted voice in New England for more than 90 years and we would like to work with our listeners to improve the lives of New Englanders in need.
If you would like your charity to be considered, please send us an email.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030 is proud to support Big Brothers Big Sisters and Big Brother Big Sister Foundation. Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. The BBBS Foundation collects used clothing & household items, converts them into cash, and gives 100% of the profits to the mentoring program.
The organization provides children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community BBBS is accountable for each child in the program achieving: Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships; Avoidance of risky behaviors; Educational success
The BBBS Foundation is dedicated to supporting Big Brother Big Sister organizations in Greater Boston and Southern New Hampshire. Their mission is to raise money for these agencies by helping the community to “Clean Up Clutter For a Good Cause!” BBBS Foundation sends their fleet of trucks to over 200 towns in Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire to pick up gently used items at your doorstep.
When you donate clothing and other items to the BBBS Foundation, most of your donations are sold in bulk at thrift stores. There is also an expanding online sales operation, where designer brands, memorabilia, collectibles, antiques, bicycles and musical instruments are sold.
Each year, BBBS Foundation also donates thousands of warm winter coats to children and adults in low income areas. They donate school supplies, from backpacks to chalk, to schools in their collection area. During times of need, they donate clothing, shoes and housewares to families in need.
