Food & Friends Drive in Partnership with Rosie’s Place

Graphics by Kevin Shin

Here at WERS, we are always proud to support the larger Boston community, which is why we’re excited to present our Food & Friends drive in partnership with Rosie’s Place.

Here’s how it works: Every single donation to WERS now through 12/31 not only benefits the music you love, but it also fills two bags of groceries for a local woman in need. This is all made possible thanks to Atomic Coffee Roasters, Drew's Stews, Noreast Apparel and other friends of the station.

But that’s not all!  When you donate $15 a month, this is what you’ll set in motion:

  • A warm and cozy WERS hat sent to you
  • A warm and cozy WERS hat sent as a gift in your name to Rosie’s Place
  • AND two bags of groceries filled up for a woman in need

Last year, thanks to the generosity of WERS listeners, we filled over 2,000 bags of groceries for more than 1,000 women and raised the funds necessary to keep WERS rocking and rolling for years to come. Let’s do it again because we can still make a difference.

Join us in support of commercial-free, independent public radio and help us meet or exceed our goal of serving 1,000 local Boston residents in need through the Rosie’s Place food pantry.
