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.
