HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The 2022 Project Concern donations have concluded at the Eagle Media Center in Hutchinson. The 2022 total is down slightly from 2021, with listeners contributing $12,790.28 this year. Dillons is also contributing $2500 in gift card value to add to the total.

KWBW’s Project Concern for 2021 raised $17,386.88 from BW radio listeners.

BW put its turkeys back in the drive-through at the studios again after being unable to do so in 2020 due to COVID-19.

KWBW obtains gift cards each year from Dillons for the Salvation Army to distribute. Between public donations and matching from Dillons, in 2021, Project Concern helped 640 families. The Salvation Army tells KWBW that they will help 700 families this season.

Project Concern would not be a success each year without the help of BW's generous listeners. Our thanks to all of those who helped to give families in Hutchinson a Thanksgiving to remember.
