Stan and Alison Bennett, owners of Bennett Radio Group, have announced the 3rd annual WOXO Christmas for Kids & Teens Radiothon presented by Flanders Electric on Thursday, Nov. 17 from 6am-7pm.
The 13-hour event will benefit RightStart, a volunteer-staffed 501(c)(3) non-profit, which has been providing programs and services to children and teens throughout Oxford Hills since 1979.
WOXO will work in conjunction with the Oxford Hills Chamber of Commerce and RightStart to raise money and collect toys and clothing for children and families in need throughout the Oxford Hills region.
Items and monetary donations will be accepted throughout the day at the WOXO studio at 243 Main St. in Norway. Listeners may also donate by credit card via the Norway Savings Bank Donation Line at (207) 743-7812.
Local business representatives, local officials, and other guests will join the WOXO on-air staff and Oxford Hills Chamber of Commerce executive director John Williams to discuss the importance of supporting less fortunate kids and teens throughout the region.
Many local businesses have added support to the event including Oxford Federal Credit Union, Lincoln St. Radiator, Androscoggin Bank, Rowe Auto Group, Stephen’s Memorial Hospital, Dirigo Federal Credit Union, Rowe Credit in Auburn, 290 Main St. Pub, and Aroma Joe’s.
