Eat Breakfast with Santa! 2nd Annual Christmas Wish Benefit with Offroad Jeepers
Because last year's fundraiser was a huge success, Dairy Queen and the Owensboro Offroad Jeepers are at it again. Stop by on Saturday to check out the decked-out jeeps, drop off some toys, and eat breakfast with Santa.
Whenever there's a big community event, you can count on Owensboro Offroad Jeepers to show up. They're a great bunch of humans that love to give back and help people in need. Last year they teamed up with Dairy Queen on Frederica Street in Owensboro, to do just that. The Christmas Wish fundraiser was such a success that they plan to do it again Saturday!

OVER 1,300 CHRISTMAS WISH LETTERS RECEIVED TO DATE
Before we get to the hottest toys, the trend with this year's letters is alarming. 70% of the letter submissions are asking for clothes. 25% are asking for simple things like socks and underwear. Many are just asking for personal hygiene products. In my seven years as the director of Christmas Wish, this is the most requests I've seen. We offer new winter coats to any child that needs one but only supply clothing if we have some on hand. We focus more on toys for children and a Christmas meal for the family. If you can donate socks, underwear, or pajamas it would be greatly appreciated.
