WERS Partners with Rosie's Place

WERS Partners with Rosie's Place

Up until the 11:59:59PM on New Years Eve, WERS is partnering with Rosie’s Place to double the impact of your holiday donation. 

That’s right – one gift, double the impact. That’s our holiday tradition here at WERS.

Double Your Impact
