BEND, Ore. -

Combined Communications is pleased to announce the conclusion of the 2nd Annual WILD 107.7 Giving Tree, presented by Hayden Homes and First Story.

Wild 107.7 staff handed out Christmas presents to almost 200 local in-need children this holiday season. Listeners nominated families that they knew were struggling, which resulted in 198 names on the WILD Giving Tree.

On Friday, December 13, WILD 107.7 invited all 198 children and their parents to Sun Mountain Fun Center for The Wild Giving Tree Party. Gifts were distributed, and sweet treats and hot cocoa served. Santa and Mrs. Claus were there for pictures with the kids.

WILD 107.7 sends out a big thanks to community supporters Hayden Homes, First Story, Sun Mountain Fun Center, Leapin’ Lizards Toy Company, Sweet Tooth Candy Shoppe, Wal-Mart in Redmond and Bend, Dutch Bros. and SantaInBend.com.
