Make a child's Christmas wish come true this holiday season and sponsor a child for Hey Kid, It's Santa!

WBT and John Hancock have been supporting Kids First of the Carolinas for many years and we are so happy to be continuing this tradition in 2017.

Kids First of the Carolinas is a small, grass roots charity that works to help families in our comunity and focuses on supporting families and children right here in the Charlotte area.  

Every year John Hancock hosts a special live broadcast asking listeners like to drive by on your way home and donate a bike for kids in need. 

It’s a heartfelt toy and bicycle drop off that is sure to make your season brighter, but more importantly the children whom this is helping.
