Each year around the holidays, the Free Beer & Hot Wings Show makes it a point to stop all of the mocking and joking around for at least one day and use the reach that this radio show has to do some good. For the 19th consecutive year, we'll be conducting the Free Beer and Hot Wings Holiday Break-ins.

With the holidays approaching, many people will simply not be able to provide for their families. We have a solution for this - families in need can be nominated by you, our listeners. We will then go through those nominations and select the deserving recipients.

Our goal has always been to select the families that we can help the most. If we select the family that you nominate, you will then become our "accomplice" and will help us throughout the entire process: shopping for the family, getting the family out of the house, the actual break-in, etc.). On the day of the break-ins, our teams of "hoodlums", with the help of a locksmith and local police, will literally break into the recipients' home and leave them a holiday season they may not have had...food, decorations, gifts, everything.

No notes will be left. There will be no TV cameras or reporters. Everything is completely anonymous. This is done solely with the intent to provide these families with something that they are financially unable to provide themselves.

If you know a family in need this holiday season, nominate them here. Please provide us with as many details as possible such as the number of children, ages, parents' work hours and anything else you think would help. All we ask is that you do not nominate yourself, or those you live with. And please, keep it a secret from those nominated!

A big thank you to our friends at Serra Honda Grandville and Noble Appliance for jumping in to help out with this year's break-ins!
